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, hosted in cooperation with ufaFabrik at AR-Safe Haven Berlin. The AR-Network is curated by Perpetuum Mobile (PM) and is coordinated by the AR-Secretariat, co-funded by Kone Foundation. This residency is generously funded by a German funding body.
