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”. During his AR-Residency 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.
