Backstage Episode #41: Artist in Residence Rapasa Otieno

10 minutes

Backstage 41

A passion for preserving the local indigenous music of western Kenya has brought vocalist and nyatiti player Rapasa Otieno to the north east of England where he is one of Sage Gateshead’s four artists-in-residence. Rapasa, who released his debut album Tipona earlier this year, introduces us to the nyatiti instrument and explains what he hopes to gain from his residency.

 

Backstage is a regular podcast where we go behind the scenes for exclusive interviews and insights from leading and emerging artists who’ll be taking to the stage at Sage Gateshead, and discover some of the activities that take place, and the communities that meet there.
