Nyokabi Kariũki + Cello Octet Amsterdam

The work of Kenyan composer Nyokabi Kariũki is illuminated by musical sensibilities and philosophies from her African upbringing. Based between Nairobi and the USA and while trained in Western classical contexts, Nyokabi shares a unique and affecting artistic voice spanning across various genres, Her sound moves between experimental and classical contemporary, to sound art and explorations into (East) African musical traditions. At Gaudeamus 2022, she will present her debut EP peace places: kenyan memories, which received praise from The Guardian, Pitchfork and others, together with the Cello Octet Amsterdam.
