M-Tafsiri Africa Duo is a Danish-Kenyan band with the charismatic Kenyan percussionist Reagan who plays in a unique constellation with the young Danish violinist and vocalist Amalie Malmgren Asmild.
The two musicians met in the summer 2016 in Kabiria slum where Reagan volunteers his skills to help Kenyan street children and youth through music. The Duo formed an independent band from M-Tafsiri Africa Band in Denmark the same year.
M-Tafsiri Africa Duo plays Kenyan traditional percussive music fused with the sound of the violin inspired by Scandinavian folk music. They play traditional songs as well as songs composed by Reagan Oduor Nyachieng’a.
Through their joyful concerts, the duo seeks to inspire their audience and show how music is a universal language that can overcome cultural barriers.
They offer a varied program of concerts and workshops for schools, institutions, companies, festivals, music platforms and private arrangements.
