Rapasa's Bio

Nyatiti NyaDala Director

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and contemporary dancer from Kenya, Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno is the founder of Nyatiti NyaDala and virtuoso of the nyatiti, a traditional eight-string lyre from the shores of Nam Lolwe (Kenya’s Lake Victoria). The music he creates is deeply rooted in traditional storytelling from the Lüo community, nilotes who also settled in Western Kenya and who are known to play the nyatiti.​

He will facilitate for your mind to travel through his music and storytelling and perhaps you might find yourself reaching your roots. His talent in captivating the young generation makes his animated school workshops an experience children will not forget.

Thu Tinda!!!
