Yawe & Doris keep their Machakos studio dream alive
In 2017, I met two young creatives in Machakos, Kenya; Doris Wairimu and Anthony Yawe Law. They had this dream of starting a recording studio, but didn’t have the resources to do so.
This didn’t deter them and they had started recording artists in their living room. I met them again this year, about 4 years after we first met. They have made progress with their work, and still have the vision of setting up a state of the art recording studio.
In the meantime, they continue to make it possible for other young people in Machakos to get their voices heard by recording podcasts, music tracks, and videos.
Their passion and commitment is an absolute inspiration. I recently helped them launch their website as they prepare to begin an effort to crowdfund for their dream studio.
Here is their online home.

I believe that every serious artist should be able to make a living from their work if they want to and I’m on a mission to find the best tools, ideas, and resources to help artists succeed. I experiment with business models, monetization ideas, and new technology in my own creative process as part of this journey of discovering.
