Art + Activism = Artivism
In this enlightening bonus episode, we sat down with Javan Ofula aka Javan The Poet from Dandora on his experience of mixing his art with his work as a human rights defender. Javan wears many hats as an activist, artist, community leader, active member of the Dandora Community Justice Centre and representative of Embakasi North in the Youth Council.

What are we Jamming to this week? We’re glad you asked!
This week we're throwing it back to Angalia Saa by Ukoo Flani. Do you guys remember this jam? It's a complete throwback by Ukoo Flani Mau Mau. Other than the amazing falsetto, the 12 year old song is dedicated to all the shujaas who fought for us during the first liberation. The 5 minute video that is mostly in black and white is almost like a snapshot of such critical moments and themes in our history. If you're Gen Z and you are listening to us wondering what, who?... Well, head over to youtube and check it out!
