Making Tracks


Recording the nyatiti sound  and other East African instruments

Jopango studio session 2.jpg

This is a long term experimental project of Rapasa Nyatrapasa in his quest to document nyatiti music and sound. Under the precious guidance of Dan Burt and Nathan Okite he is investigating different approaches to record, mix and master music and songs he composes in an attempt to capture East African instruments and specifically nyatiti most majestically. He started this project while participating in the Artist in Residence programme at Sage Gateshead 2020/2021 when creating a new collection of work called KWEChE which is inspired with recent life changing events as well as changing audience and environment. KWEChE was produced and  released in August 2021. More information can be found in the Discography page and on Bandcamp. He has continued this developing on his current project ''benga on the road'' upcoming release JOPANGO, work which he composed on the road and is inspired by the story of Benga music, a genre which has some of its roots in nyatiti music and evolved in Kenya since the 1940s. This particular project is funded by Help Musician UK MOBO funds.

Thu Tinda!!!
