The evening began with the event’s weekly headliner, the Jacob Asiyo Band, on an outdoor stage playing gentle jazz tunes. This week’s featured artist, Atemi Oyungu, joined in soon after, lending her incredible vocals to a range of tunes. Artcaffe lovers enjoyed everything from upbeat jazz scat to soothing Swahili Afro Soul; Atemi even treated the audience to an inspired cover of Alicia Keys’ “You don’t know my name”.
The event’s sponsor, Magnum Cream Liqueur, seemingly crafted the signature cocktail, The Magnum Bubblegum, to match the evening’s ambiance. The iced blend of Magnum, Captain Morgan, Strawberry Monin, and fresh strawberries in the cocktail offered a thick, smooth and sweet pairing to the soothing atmosphere.
