The Life House is proud to present Woman Rising 2016 in special celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD).
WomanRising 2016 is the sixth in the IWD celebration series, which The Life House began in 2011. Over the past six years, The Life House IWD celebration series have infused various aspects of the arts such as literature, visual art, theatre, poetry, film etc. This year we are delighted to retain that tradition and promise an uplifting fusion of music, spoken word, theatre and pure unadulterated connection with our best art and our best selves – all very needed in these hard times.
Woman Rising 2016 is scheduled to hold on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of March 2016 respectively.
The two-day event kicks off with an invitation-only Champagne Brunch Mixer followed by a fabulous music concert to wrap up the weekend.
The music concert is this Sunday 20th March 2016 and will feature an extra special all-female line-up of performers – Temi Doll Face, Aramide, Simi, Ranti and Ruby who do amazing work with transporting audiences with their vocal range and depth.
Musicianship and mastery of non-vocal instruments will also be on full show as South African baritone saxophonist Tamar Osborn will join classical jazz pianist Rolake Akinkugbe and violinist Jennifer Obaze to perform solo and group medleys of classical and afrobeat compositions.

Acclaimed and award-winning thespian, Lala Akindoju will not only be our gracious host and MC, she will also perform a brand new theatrical piece and last but not least our favourite men will, in Woman Rising tradition, join the stage to read select literary pieces adding some poetic lyrical energy to the night.
The Woman Rising 2016 Music Concert will hold in the Marquee at Federal Palace in a unique all-sofa layout and will be a great night out. So tell your friends to tell their friends.
It will be a night to remember!
