Time: 6pm
venue : Goethe Insitut, Auditorium
Admission Free
What constitutes an artistic identity, and how has that concept changed for Kenyan musicians over the years? In a recent interview with Music In Africa, Tabu Osusa of Ketebul Music suggested the only way young musicians will secure a distinctive identity is by embracing traditional music.

Santuri East Africa and Ketebul Music will present a day of activities investigating this claim, and seeking solutions to questions of identity, tradition, innovation – and the role of technology in music production. The event will combine a co-creation session between older artists from Kenya’s rich history of musical past, curated by Ketebul, with younger musicians, producers and DJs representing the digital age from the Santuri network. Following this, a panel discussion will take place at Goethe-Institut’s Auditorium, investigating the results for the co-creation workshop, as well as inviting noted guest speakers from the music industry, media, and cultural curators.

Finally, the space will evolve into a party that will incorporate the past, present and future of Kenyan music, presenting live performances and DJ sets from a diverse selection of artists.

Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission: 500/= KSh, entrance to the discussion will be free
