History

Ohangla Music: is a traditional Luo music that is highly infused with instruments- more than six drums struck by a stick and a cylindrical shoulder slung drum, accompanied by either Nyatiti or kinanda. Ohangla, presently is used for common entertainment, including at wedding parties and campaign rallies.

In the olden days, Ohangla was mainly played at funerals, beer parties and during Yawo rut (a celebration to mark the birth of twins).Did you know it was burned by local chief in the 80's? Because his wife ran away with one of the crippled Ohangla player. Due to shame and anger, the chief banned the playing of Ohangla in his location.

Ohangla is mainly associated with vigorous gyration of the hips, suggestive dances, obscene lyrics and liberal changaa (illicit brew), for years, it was a common form of music to only the Luo culture.

Currently

But now, Ohangla has cut across different ethnic groups in the nation. Now even in Kikuyu weddings, you'll hear a Tony Nyadundo or Lady Moureen's song being played.

And tonight, we get to sway our hips to live Ohangla tunes courtesy of the Queen of Ohangla herself, Lady Moureen.Performance starts at 8pm till late, and it's open to everyone.

Free entry, so you have no excuse to miss out this.

Catch her live at Skyworld Lounge, located at Tom Mboya Street.
