ABOUT
 
The European Union (EU) and the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) countries have been negotiating an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) since 2008. In the already agreed text of this new free trading agreement, each East African Country is required to open up 82.6% of its market.
 
When Kenya s President Kenyatta refused to sign the agreement, the EU imposed tariffs that placed a severe strain on Kenyas cut flowers and beans and forced President Kenyatta to acquiesce to the agreement.
 
Daniel Muhuni, Agnieszka Krzeminska and Sven Kacirek recorded several interviews about this issue with smallholder farmers, economists and politicians in Kenya; and are now in the process of turning those interviews into music.
 
Daniel Muhuni and Sven Kacirek have already presented this project live at the Berliner Festspiele in May 2017.
 
The music is set to be released in November 2017 as free download and vinyl on Pingipung Records (The Kenya Sessions).
