An official Logo and theme song have been unveiled for the the EAC Arts and Culture Festival; Jamafest.

Both symbols of the Festival were officially unveiled in Kigali,on January 25, ahead of the Jamafest opening on 11 February 2013.

Rwanda will host the event that will run until 17 February 2013.

The theme song is in Kiswahili—an upbeat track delivered against groovy beats with the central theme of unity among the East African people.

It celebrates the oneness of the five Partner States, wonderfully capturing the essence of the forthcoming EAC Arts and Culture Festival.

The logo is the new visual identity of the Festival and like the theme song, emphasizes the unity of the five Partner States with a story told simply yet powerfully through the official EAC colors and one of the region’s enduring symbols of celebration—the drum.

The EAC Deputy Secretary General in charge of Productive and Social Sectors Hon. Jesca Eriyo describes the Jamafest symbols as “purely East African, beautiful artistic creations”.
