The Kenya Music Festival aims to assist the Ministry of Education in fulfilling its mandate by providing learning experiences in and out of the classroom.

The national event has been held annually since 1928 apart from 2020 and 2021 when it was suspended due to Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Kenya National Music Festival Executive Secretary Janet Langat, the festival is the Ministry of Education’s largest arts event, hosting hundreds of thousands of participants each year.

The 95th Kenya Music Festival promises to create memorable experiences for all participants and stakeholders.

The piece will be presented by Ivy Wanjiku, Oarpetua Biego, Sandra Barto, Abigael Murei, Jane Wairimu, Abigael Cherambos, Mercy Okani, Joyleen Kenei and Juliet Chepchumba.
