Tunedin.London: Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno
Thursday 5 March 2020 @ 7.00pm£14
Rapasa is a singer songwriter & great advocate of traditional music.
He plays many East African indigenous instruments, his principal love
being the Nyatiti, a beautiful lyre of the Lüo community, whose people
now live along the Kenyan shores of Nam Lolwe (Lake Victoria), from
where he hails. His music, steeped in heritage, is a journey, that
follows the music of the Nyatiti as his ancestors migrated with it along the great
waterway that is the Nile, drawing a likeness to those who set sail aboard the
Mayflower and headed seaward from our own riverside community.
