Maisha Yetu Staff

In Maisha Yetu we work with both upcoming and established artists. We have birthed creative spaces such as WAPI for  aspiring artists and art enthusiasts to converge and share. Same venues have also been used in collaboration with the Kenya Copyright Board (Kecobo) to educate artists an copyrights and intellectual property.

Maisha Yetu uses popular cultural expressions to disseminate its objectives in a creative fashion; entertaining,sensitizing and educating the youth. The genres are Alternative, Hiphop, Reggae, Afrobeat, rock and selective African local genres. Though the five elements of Hiphop; Mcing, Djaying, graffiti, B-Boying and entrepreneurship  are key mediums of expressions by our constituents, we do not limit ourselves around them but are permeable to creativity. Case in point  last year working with a  Congolese Rhumba Maestro Fally Ipupa Nsimba.

I met Fally Ipupa back in 2009 at the MTV MAMA Awards, we had alot to share as artists and Pan Africanists. Most would be surprised to learn of Fally’s  profound views on peace and harmony in Africa. It comes as no surprise owing to  the fact that he resides in war torn Congo.

Sawasawa Festival has grown to be an international event that attracts alot of international artists and music lovers. Maisha Yetu through Bra Muki as the liason  facilitated Fally Ipupa’s first and only successful perfomance with his full band Sons Orchestrae at the Carnivore Gardens on May 28th 2011. With an attendance of 7000 thronging the grounds to enjoy the 3 days event.

We in Maisha Yetu are always ready to provide your organizations/company with connections to international artists you may not have access to. The traditional Sawasawa festival is hosted during the month of May and we await to see the surprise Sarakasi will unveil this year.
