KARIBU. This is an open-access archive of Nairobi’s sonic environment. It is intended as a resource for artists, researchers, recorders… anyone interested in knowing more about the city and its people through a medium in which we are constantly immersed but, paradoxically, rarely pay conscious attention to: SOUND.

Check out our new project Sounds like a pandemic? here
