Music is an important part of Wale Wale Kenya and is used in many different ways. Singing and drums are important elements in the African traditional dance performances. New music is also created within the youth center. We have through a crowdfunding campaign raised the funds to build an Art and Media Center. We aim to educate youths from Kibera in all forms of music production. The youths can come and learn, write, record and produce music. The aim is also to let kids and youths learn how to play instruments at the center.
We have been awarded a grant from the French Embassy of Kenya’s Social Fund for Development to develop our Art and Music Center with film making, music production and blogs. We aim to educate members of Wale Wale Kenya in these areas and they will in turn educate others and spread knowledge to youths outside of Wale Wale.
