We warmly welcome Lil Baliil, the Somali Afro-Pop musician from Nairobi, Kenya, to a year-long AR-residency at AR-Safe Haven Berlin. A greatly loved artist among East African youth, Lil Baliil recently won the “East African Song of the Year, 2019”. He endeavours to encourage other young Somalis to follow their dreams. During his AR-Residency, Lil Baliil will continue writing, recording and performing his music.
Lil Baliil is an Artists-at-Risk (AR) Resident at AR-Safe Haven Berlin, co-hosted by PM and ufaFabrik and curated by Perpetuum Mobile (PM). This residency is generously funded by a German funding body.
The AR Secretariat, which administers the wider AR-Network, is generously funded by Koneen Säätiö – Kone Foundation.
