Multi-talented artist Miriam Chemmoss hails from East-Africa.
She spent her formative years between Tanzania and Kenya where she was steeped in a potent brew of her family’s diverse African,
European and Middle-Eastern cultural heritage.
As a teen, Miriam was involved in theatre and music programmes in every school she attended
– close to 10 schools – as a result of frequent relocation due to her father’s military career.

» His Inspiring Untold Story Exclusive
I don't know about you, but I remember the days when I used to go to the village (shags) to cucus-grandma's (R.I.P.)
of my father's side to stay with her for weeks in some thatched-old-school mud house.
For breakfast we had to drink black tea Turungi aka True Tea aka black tea.
With the tea, she would peel me off a dome of a Duma (Yam)
and Gwaci (Sweet-Potato) from lunch the day before and had to munch on that till I finished.

» Exclusive Online Interview: Boomba Clan
One of the most entertaining groups to come out of East Africa in Kenya is no other than Boomba Clan.
Since the first time I was in Kenya to be married in 2006.
I heard the sounds of Boomba Clan on the radio, television, nightclubs and dining out in restaurants with the smashing hit "Chonga Viazi."
Their style reminded me of solo singer - comedian "Weird Al Yankovic" from the US.

» Victoria Njau
Twenty-three years ago I was born to a Luo mother and a Kikuyu father.
But it was my mother who raised me.
I grew up in a small village whose culture consisted of traditional rituals and taboos.
The outside world was non-existent.
But slowly I found myself introduced to the ways of the modern world.
My educational journey started out with me attending one of the most prestigious schools in Kenya.

» Kawangware or “Ungwaro”
It's a perfect comparison between the ones who have and those who lack.
From the peace and quiet, nicely mowed green lawns, tall trees swaying gently to the evening breeze,
few people walking around on the smooth tarmac pavements with no traffic with loud noises from hooting vehicles,
dilapidated roads, half-naked malnutrition children screaming, hawkers calling for customer attention,
masses of people...
