about

The CD comprising of ten songs was recorded over a period of 2 years at Ketebul Studios, and saw the ladies enduring numerous trips back and forth between the marginalised region of Garissa in northern Kenya and the capital city, Nairobi.

Garissa Express features songs that are uniquely traditional and in keeping with Somali language and sounds, yet arranged and recorded with modern instrumentation to keep it relevant to the present day.

It is a huge accomplishment and statement on freedom of expression by the ladies from a community that discourages women from being musicians.
