The Singing Wells Project
Project location: East Africa
Project timing: Launched March 2011
Singing Wells is a project with the preservation of East Africa’s music heritage at its very heart. While working on this project we will be supporting Ketebul Music in Nairobi as they embark on a mission to record traditional East African music in villages throughout the region. The team from Abubilla Music will be providing advice and expertise for the Ketebul Music sound engineers while they travel throughout the region undertaking field recordings. The Abubilla Music Foundation is helping to provide financial support for essential equipment and services which Ketebul Music needs to make sure the project achieves its objectives.

Meninos do Morumbi
Project location: Sao Paulo, Brazil
Project timing: Starting January 2011
First and foremost Meninos do Morumbi is a band, albeit a huge one. When you talk to its founder, Flavio Pimenta, he makes clear that everyday he is nurturing the ‘soul of the band’, made up of 100’s of kids that need to learn how to make their way on their own in the world. But this Sao Paolo organisation is far more; it gives children and teenagers an alternative to street life by teaching them drumming, singing and dance, plus providing them with traditional schooling.
Our work with Meninos do Morumbi will start with funding from the Abubilla Music Foundation to help them develop their website and digital marketing capabilities. We have worked closely with technicians in Brazil to populate the site with content, and thus ensure that valuable time with the band is not taken away from Flavio or his immediate team.
