"Music, drama and other forms of art are rooted in the ancient history of our Empire, and their development to an even higher peak of perfection will be possible in the atmosphere of a university. Ethiopia is possessed of an ancient literature, and its study can be fostered here so that the Ethiopian youth, inspired by this national example, may raise it to yet higher levels of excellence." H.I.M. Haile Selassie I, Dec. 19, 1961 - Convocation of Haile Selassie I University.
Blessed Love and greetings our Dear Reader. We are grateful to have another opportunity to share with you the progress made by H.I.M. Negus Shiriki Organization. Despite a year of silence, we still are growing stronger!
As part of our endeavours to promote the talents of the youth, educate the community and establish more partnerships, we will be holding a music concert at the Carnivore Grounds, Nairobi, on 27th May 2017. The event will have music from our well-established Kenyan artists, as well as up-coming ones. There will also be sales of art by youth. Some of our partners from the U.S. Virgin Islands, the music group Akae Beka (Midnite), who represent today's finest of conscious artists, will be performing live. As well, we will be joined by the Black Chariot International DJs from Trinidad. To scout for and advise talent will be the CEO of I Grade Records, Tippy Alfred, who will also do a presentation with I Grade Dub. Proceeds from the show will go towards our community development projects.
It is our hope that you will be fortunate enough to get a chance to be part of us and feel the positive vibes. Peace, Love and Oneness always.
