About Sauti Academy (Penya Africa)


 Penya Africa’s artist development program reaches out to singers/rappers who would like to take their talent to the next level. After one year, every graduate should be able to start and sustain a (semi)professional career in the music industry. The program includes weekly voice lessons, music theory, piano lessons as well as music business workshops. At the end of each term we organize a Sauti Academy showcase for you to present your progress to the outside world. The Sauti Academy program is the place where Penya Africa exclusively scouts for new talent.

We are organizing a new round of auditions on the 4th (by appointment: natalie@penya-africa.com) and 5th (from 9am – first come first served) of May 2012. In the auditions you are expected to perform 1 or 2 songs either with a backing track or with an accompanist (guitarist/pianist/etc) or a-capella. You will also have a short interview about your motivation to join the program. The auditions will take place at Penya Africa studio in Pangani (Showbe plaza, entrance C, 2nd floor).

The fee is Ksh 15000 per term (April, August & December are holidays), but we have scholarships available for talented vocalists who cannot afford the fees. All Sauti Academy students are expected to contribute to our outreach programs before completing the program.

So do you think you have what it takes to shake up the entertainment scene? Are you looking to be the artist who will storm the music world? Do you feel that music can  contribute to a better society?
