The Santuri Salon is our new space in the Basement of The Mall, Westlands. 

It’s a multi-functional space for workshops, performances, listening sessions, panels, and more.

It’s also a place for DJs and producers to access the hardware and software Santuri shares with the community. What’s more, we started a small library focusing on music culture books and publications.  

The space is available for hire. Simply contact Santuri on:

Housed in a former beauty salon in the basement of The Mall, Santuri’s Salon is the central operational base for Santuri activities, combining a recording studio, music production stations, a workshop / classroom area, an office, and a showcase area.

From this space Santuri plans to:

  • Create a value-driven, vibrant and inclusive space in Nairobi for music practitioners to learn skills, develop creative works, and share them with local, regional and global audiences.

  • Establish an East African reciprocal residency program that combines learning, collaboration and artistic innovation, connecting Kenya and Tanzania, expanding to 3 other locations in 2023/4.

  • House our celebrated SEMA education program and and grow our community by building a vibrant Alums network - creating opportunities and providing sustained support

Them Mushrooms live

“Santuri has been a much needed breathe of fresh air in the Nairobi music space post-pandemic, bringing together equally inspired and curious music minds to learn, engage and interact. The Santuri Salon is a perfect add on to this ecosystem, right in the heart of Westlands (Nairobi party district), providing a space to showcase some of the magic the city is making. It was an honour for Them Mushrooms, one of Kenyas most iconic bands, to able to jam in the space to a small exclusive audience, in the build up to the Hamsini Tour celebrating 50 Years of Live music”.
George ‘Porgie’ Gachui, Them Mushrooms Manager
