OneBeat, an initiative of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is inviting applications from Kenyan musicians aged between 19-35 for next year’s fellowship.

These musicians must demonstrate both an advanced proficiency in their musical work, an interest in cross-genre collaboration, and experience with or interest in developing strategies to use music as a way to improve their communities.

This is a chance for adventurous, socially-committed young musicians looking for a chance to collaborate with other like-minded musicians from around the world.

OneBeat 2013 will take place from September 9 to October 6, and is divided into two segments; a residency and a tour. During the residency, they will spend two weeks at the Atlantic Centre for the Arts in central Florida, immersed in a process of collaborative music creation and experimentation.

During the two-week tour, OneBeat ensembles will collaborate with local musicians to give public performances and lead workshops with youth and community groups.

The fellows will also work with a diverse group of expert collaborating artistes including luminaries of classical music, hip-hop, jazz and more to develop and deepen the scope of their collaborative work.



Kenyan TV show imagines European refugees fleeing to Africa in 2062

Very funny and interesting,can you imagine mzungus going to Africa as Refugees?.

Kenyan TV series Usoni plans to flip the script on immigration stories by imagining a future in which the sun is no longer visible in most parts of the world, leaving Africa as the sole oasis of sunshine.

Created by Dr. Marc Rigaudis, produced by Denver Ochieng, and directed by Cherie Lindiwe of the United States International University, Usoni is meant to examine immigration issues and challenge outside views of African nations as poverty-stricken. Talking to Tech Moran, Ochieng explains:

Usoni is actually a series focusing on the travel of a couple from the natural disaster stricken Europe to now the now illustrious Africa in 2062. It is a story which focuses on the immigration hurdles of Africans to Europe and looks at how it would be if the reverse were to happen.
