The project is a musical representation of similarities and differences between two continents. Through music, the listener learns about music traditions that have developed separately from one another, but which still carry great similarities.
Daniel Onyango continues this tradition while also developing the language of the Nyatiti. In this production, Kenyan stories are interwoven with Daniel’s musical and cultural impressions from Sweden. Daniel Onyango’s vocals and Nyatits play are at the center. In collaboration, musicians Tobias Andersson (guitar) and Staffan Bråsjö (piano / song), create a sound that borrows influences from both jazz, afrobeat and not least Swedish folk music tradition.
