About the Airtel Sondeka Festival 2015

Airtel Sondeka Festival 2015 is a 3 day create/innovate festival and a first of its kind in East Africa. It brings all forms of creativity into one space to collaborate, co-create and showcase skills and social innovations for sustainable futures. It further enables creative entrepreneurs to sell goods and services, attract investment, develop new markets and showcase emerging talent. We must build a culture of embracing our home made solutions if we are to thrive and build the creative economy.

This year, Airtel Sondeka Festival 2015 is running on the theme We Are The Ones. Creatives (artists and innovators) are the ones championing the Creative revolution not only for wealth and job creation but also to address societal challenges.

Santuri@Sondeka

This September, Santuri is working closely with Airtel Sondeka Festival and Creatives Garage in Nairobi to develop an exciting programme of music creation, workshops, performances and parties.

In the run up to the festival, Santuri will be hosting a series of workshops designed to push the boundaries of creativity in the Kenyan music scene. Guest producers and artists from the UK, Germany and SA – all hugely respected in their own fields – will work with local artists, young producers and DJs to build innovative new ways to create and perform music – from sampling traditional instruments and building software versions, to integrating technology into acoustic live performances – ands vice versa.

Santuri is committed to empowering artists with new skills that give voice to their backgrounds and cultures, while putting them on a level playing field with the global cutting edge.
