Earlier in the day, we’ll also be hosting a discussion with the artist as well as the authors of an exciting new research project, supported by Pro Helvetia Johannesburg and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
Over the past year Santuri East Africa had been working with Pro Helvetia to develop a research project around connecting musicians from East Africa with the ‘global underground’. The research has been conducted in Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Germany and the UK, and puts forward a some interesting and exciting avenues for exploration.
Starting at 3pm at Nafasi, this session will be of interest to artists, managers, cultural curators and music fans alike.
