The Barclays Live Dimensions concert is the place to be if you want to listen to your popular acts live on stage in a nice dinner setting. This month's edition was headlined by songstresses Atemi Oyungu and Nyota Ndogo. The duo entertained a crowd of more than 500 people reeling with excitement when each took to the Carnivore Simba Saloon stage on Wednesday.

Atemi performed "Nairobi" off her latest album "Manzili"while Nyota Ndogo gave a taste of her sensational Swahili blend of contemporary music.

Barclays Live Dimensions, held every last Wednesday of the month, creates a platform through which local artistes under the Pine Creek Records umbrella showcase their talent. The stage has played host to vibrant talent, among them celebrated songbird Mercy Myra, the upcoming Sarabi Band and Anto Neosoul. This event has over the past three months grown in popularity as a unique entertainment experience.

"This is a very exciting venture for us at Barclays Bank as we see it as a great platform to not only interact with our Prestige Banking customers, but to also engage them around achieving their life ambitions," said Sheila Makunda, Barclays Bank of Kenya marketing manager.

On his part, Pine Creek Records chief executive Peter Nduati said the partnership has helped raise the popularity of the artistes, giving them a chance to woo new fans across various backgrounds.
