Why This Matters
The Maasai are being forcefully evicted from traditional lands
As globalization increasingly results in evictions of the Maasai from their pastoralist homeland, the young adults stand at a precipice, hemmed in on all sides as their traditional social patterns and communal way of life are disrupted, though their spirit remains strong. Finding ways forward in their increasingly changing world, they need to be heard, their stories be told, and their futures supported. Our goal is to bridge the social mobility gap by providing a platform for personal growth, expression, informed worldviews, and supplemental income generation.
Voice of Maasai, East African Music Collective and Social Impact Media Brand includes over 45 individual artists and has over 60K fans. Our repertoire includes Bongo Flava, GOGO fusion, Hip Hop, Traditional, Folk, Soul and Gospel, empowering creativity in and around Maasailand and Greater Kilimanjaro.
