Linking together artists and musicians, facilitating creative spaces and developing new musical works
Bringing together the traditional and the futuristic, SoundThread facilitates collaborations between musicians, artists and electronic music producers, with the purpose of supporting and nurturing a spirit of artistic adventurousness.
Bridging the gap between traditional artists, instruments, rhythms and cultures and the cutting edge of the global underground music scene, SoundThread has various exciting projects underway in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria.

Santuri has worked with festivals all over the region – Sauti za Busara in Zanzibar, DoaDoa East Africa Performing Arts Market and Bayimba International Festival of the Arts in Uganda, Jambo Festival in Arusha, plus Sondeka and Rift Valley Festival in Kenya.
