Singeli music was born in the slum of Dar es Salaam, the fastest growing city in the world. It was established at the turn of the century, when, after 40 years of building a socialist economy, Tanzania began implementing liberal reforms. Singeli's creators come from the first generation that grew up in the new reality. The texts of their songs, attitudes, goals and dreams reflect the image of the epoch.

Jan Moss is a visual artist who uses film, sculpture and sound.
