Exploring the depths of musical history is a unique experience in a world where fast-paced sounds and appealing melodies are the norm. The trip is made much more fascinating when it arrives in Turkana, Kenya, a region renowned for its rich cultural heritage.

Although violence and poverty have traditionally made headlines in Northern Kenya, the area is also incredibly beautiful and rich in cultural history. The biggest desert lake in the world, Lake Turkana, is located amid its harsh, dry surroundings. The lake was given the name Jade Sea because of its unusually emerald waters, and its craters and crocodile-filled islands make it one of the world’s most unusual tourist destinations.

Turkana is undergoing a cultural transformation right now, and artists there and elsewhere have had a chance to contribute to the conversation and elevate art above the region’s most pressing problems through Turkana Sessions.

Turkana Sessions

We dive into Turkana Sessions, where traditional melodies and innovative rhythms meet against one of Kenya’s most stunning backdrops. The outstanding Eddie Grey from Nairobi is joined by the proud boys and daughters of Turkana, Jackson Nakuwa, Mourine Apuu, Jackson Ekori, and Elizabeth Korikel. They come together as a dream team of musicians, fusing the sounds of their ancestors with contemporary flare.

Turkana Sessions is a celebration of history and a tribute to the colorful fabric of Turkana culture — more than just a musical partnership. Every note carries the spirit of tradition, from the soul-stirring melodies that reverberate over the wide expanse of the Turkana countryside to the rhythmic chants passed down through generations.

“The people of Turkana are happy to have their story told through the visual and musical journey curated by the projects Content House has implemented. They are happy to have thier culture shared.”

Not only is the music unique to Turkana Sessions but so is the way it is portrayed to the outside world.
