KARIBU. This is an open-access archive of the sounds of Nairobi. It employs sound as a material that can be archived, researched and explored as a source of information that can narrate the story of the city, now and in the future. It is intended as a resource for artists, researchers, recordists… anyone interested in sound.

NEWS: We are delighted SOUND OF NAIROBI received a Sound of the Year Award 2020 for the category Sound Innovator!
