Photostory: Of Songs and Dance in the Slums

by - 10:41 PM

Had the funniest time when my friend James (who also works at the school I'm teaching music at in Kibera) took me to visit his family further into the slum. I decided to whip out my uke and play a song for his sisters, but before we knew it, all the kids in the area were congregated out the door singing praise songs with us. Well you know what, I was like, who cares if we don't have space, we'll just squeeze outside in between the huts and have a dance and jam altogether!

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
