The Moipei Triplets Embrace New York
October 31, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
The Moipei Triplets (Mary, Maggy and Marta) are from Nairobi, Kenya, and currently reside in the U.S. Their musical journey began in Kenya Music Festival competitions with their sister Serafina. They were awarded 1st place honors for four consecutive years. Their success has enabled them to showcase their talents to national and international audiences, taking part in various cultural festivals and conventions in Tanzania, Uganda, Canada, Venezuela, China, and the United States.
After a successful tour of South Korea, representing their country during the Young People’s Festival, the sisters, at the age of 12, were appointed Kenya’s first ever UNICEF Child Ambassadors. Through their musical talents they championed girl child empowerment, education, and alternative rites of passage.
They were awarded the Head of State Commendation (HSC), by the President of Kenya, in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Music Industry and the Nation. They performed in various historic theatres and opera houses around the world to sold out audiences.
Their program is as unique as their talents. They interpret some well-known selections from the American Songbook and dazzle with their illuminating take on Broadway, new and old. Throw in a dash of Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman to swing, a flash of pop to provoke, and add a traditional Swahili children’s song to bring it all back home. The exceptional talents of these three sisters blend these music genres to create an amazing, fulfilling, and entertaining evening. Music Direction by Phil Reno. Directed by Matthew Inge.
