Midi Minds Kenya in conjunction with The Safari Collection, Backdrop & Madorasindahouse travelled to Samburu National Conservancy to capture and highlight the musical identity of the Samburu warriors, women and children, in form of a song based sample pack, a documentary format video, and a Various Artists music compilation (VA).
This project is set out to raise awareness, financial ability and cultural highlight towards the Samburu tribe and community, through selected recordings for the production of this 19-track compilation. It features productions by Laolu, Armonica, Da Capo, Caiiro, Shimza, XtetiQsoul, umami, Klement Bonelli and many more, as well as local Kenyan talent, such as SURAJ, Saint Evo, Foozak & Dylan-S.
After visiting the Westgate area of Samburu, and discussions with the community leaders, we found the most common day to day issue they face is a lack of educational infrastructure. We firmly believe that this is a cause worth advocating for.
The profits from this event will go towards building a class-room in the primary school we recorded at, as well as providing sustainable contributions to a teachers fund for the area.
We culminate the project with a launch event on 30th November 2019 at The Alchemist Bar in Nairobi, Kenya with Armonica (ITL), XtetiQsoul (SA) & local artists SURAJ, Dylan-S Foozak & Euggy who have all featured original songs in the Various Artists Compilation.
