The Concept For SERRO’s New Event Is So Dope

UANI is a monthly and intimate sun-downer event that explores live music performances and candid conversations. UANI is a Swahili word which means backyard or court. When SERRO was coming up with the concept, she envisioned it being held in a garden, a backyard in someones home. So it wasn’t a surprise when the inaugural edition was hosted at her family’s backyard in K-South on the 28th of January 2018.

SERRO, through UANI, also seeks to connect lovers of authentic music to some of their favorite musicians as well as undiscovered acts through an intimate platform where they are able to connect more. She therefore features a different artist each edition where as part of the performance, they both do a collaborative set.

The most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people don’t talk anymore, they don’t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theater, the cinema, watch television, listen to radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather around a fire and tell stories. – Paulo Coelho | The Zahir

Through the event, SERRO hopes to develop a culture of communication and conversations seeing that in the current world human interactions have been restricted to electronic gadgets. At every edition, before the music performances begin, the emcee engages the audience in conversations in a particular topic such as, ‘Genuineness in the music industry’, which was the topic at the first edition.
The event’s location is usually undisclosed and only revealed to the people who actually purchase tickets to the event. UANI is hosted by different volunteer hosts from within the event community, every month. At every edition, attendees who have a backyard/lawn/garden are encouraged to send invitations to host the subsequent edition.
See you at the next UANI featuring the crooning Bensoul254  because its Valentines 😉  🙂 #UANIbySerro
