Freedom For Musicians is well into changing the world of “Notes”.
Seems to be an affair of the heart where you are pouring in everything you have. And the results are coming through load and crystal clear.
Amazing how proud you should be the emotions behind which are like music to my ears.

What an amazing site!
I love the energy of it! I am not a musician myself, but I do love music. Your site is easy to navigate and it’s easy to find everything I was looking for. The best thing is I have found some new music that I really love – the artists are amazing and I’ll be keeping a close on the updates! I look forward to checking through more of some of your amazing music. Thankyou!

Thanks for providing a fabulous platform
As a musician myself I really love what I’m seeing here. I don’t perform professionally any more but did so for many years with my partner. These days we still write, record and play and are in the process of creating an archive website for our back catalog to live on. We were slogging away way before Facebook, Youtube and all the other social platforms existed.
A Quiet Revolution
Freedom for Musicians seems like a really innovative concept for musicians to promote and distribute their digital music. I admire the work you are doing in this industry to solve the problem of exploitation by the big labels and distributors. I look forward to seeing the success of Freedom for Musicians.
One of the things I would like to do as ambassador is to demonstrate that Kenyan/East African music has produced evergreens that have left a mark, and stand out in expressing the themes of our lives.
I have always wanted to explain the hypnotic and catchy way in which African guitar-based popular music is often driven by just three chords in a riff that cycles over and over but has enough variation and colour to keep the audience listening and the dancers moving.
One such song is “Sina Makosa” (I have no fault), a Kiswahili classic from the early 70’s that still enjoys radio airplay today and captures ever younger audiences. It was written by two brothers, George Peter and Wilson Peter Kinyonga, Tanzanians who moved into Nairobi to take advantage of the thriving live entertainment and recording industry of the time.
They performed in smoky clubs, playing all-nighters to entertain revelers. Fortunately, they also recorded this song and many others, which are often to be found on YouTube channels.
