Santuri East Africa - Identity | Community | Innovation



SEMA is offering a 2-week training course for music educators and artists active in the electronic music space to refine and enhance their teaching and mentorship skill set. 

Are you active in music production education? 

Are you an established music producer, mix engineer or DJ? 

Are you interested in teaching your skills to a new generation? 

Do you have unique skills to offer and an open mind? 

Are you passionate about traditional East African Sounds and culture?


Santuri is working to give music educators active in electronic music the skills and techniques to deliver even more impactful teaching. Artists who have not professionally taught before will also gain essential skills for designing and delivering music education. 

Participants will build a toolbox of cutting-edge approaches that empower their students to achieve better results and inspire them to greater levels of creativity and innovation. 

The two-week course will be led by internationally recognized electronic music educators, working to develop an approach that is both globally relevant, and regionally contextualized. On completion, participants will not only be approved as Santuri Educators, but they will also be equipped to design and implement their own inspiring workshops and courses.

We believe you can shape the next generation of East African music innovators! 


The training takes place from 10 – 21 January 2022, attendants need to be available for 4-5 hours daily (weekends excluded). 

Female / non-binary applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

Successful applicants may also be eligible for financial support.
