The Freeplay duo of Suba Sankaran and Dylan Bell performed to a standing ovation at Kenton College's Roger Owles Memorial Hall in Kileleshwa last Sunday afternoon.
Both award-winning vocalists, the duo has performed across Canada, US, Europe and India. Suba combines musical worlds, spanning several centuries and genres and has performed for Nelson Mandela and Peter Gabriel. Dylan is an adjudicator and clinician who have given vocal workshops and master classes throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
In celebrating the 75th anniversary of Nairobi Music Society, the duo took the audience from North America to South India in an enchanting musical journey. It was an entertaining afternoon of astonishing acapella singing, including jazz, bach, world music, fusion and pop.
"They had made the audience smiling throughout, with cheers and resounding applause for their virtuoso performance," said the event's organiser, Valerie Kent.
