Evictions in Ngorongoro and Maasailand Musicians

Donation protected
Hello, this is Jessey Jansen, Manager of Voice of Maasai music label.
In late April, VOM team began a road tour, visiting Maasai communities while sharing our new album release, Upendo (Love). The tour was abruptly halted as conflict reports started to surface in June. Our beloved artists and their families are under threat of losing their home in the Ngorongoro District but currently remain safe from the violence. Many more are facing terrible calamities and displacement  (report byUnited Nations ).
As we navigate this current crisis and its impact on our artists and our label, we are staying aware, communicating daily and making efforts the team is staying emotionally and physically healthy. Our studio equipment has failed to complicate matters, so we urgently need a new mixer and iMac. As we adapt to the everchanging circumstances, assistance is required in the following ways:
DONATE FOR EQUIPMENT = continue providing a voice for the voiceless
DOWNLOAD MUSIC = royalties for our artist mean foot on the mobility ladder
WATCH VIDEO = awareness and urgent call-to-action, expressing undeniable sensibilities to standing at the precipice in modern-day Maasailand, Share and Learn

As a way of showing our appreciation, donations of $50 or more receive exclusive downloadable access to full music catalog, lyric translations and more!
