This show promotes emerging East African Music and is an introduction to the artists that are shaping innovative and alternative sounds in the region.

We’ve been recording interviews with East African artists and collecting their music in order to make a full season of podcasts. On the global scene, Nigerian and South African Music tends to attract most of the focus, and when the most talented artists in the east do get recognition, it comes from overseas, rather than their own region. There is a real need for new media that focuses on emerging music, and for media that tells the engaging stories behind the sounds. Santuri Signal aims to fill that gap!

We record interviews with the DJ’s, musicians and producers themselves, for discussions about their art. Diverse, innovative and experimental music from Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and beyond. Stay on the look out for DJ mixes too!
