The design for Kalo Shore Ele Lindaito album art is centered around vocalist Nemaa Koshuma and his pioneering spirit. His courage to use song to raise his voice about progress while keeping his mind about his traditions is truly admirable. I try to put myself in his shoes, into the labyrinth, the meandering path, the confusing human-made structures that affect life in Maasailand and the Serengeti. Circular elements weave their way into my designs as they are central in Maasai culture; from body marks to migration patterns in nature, to aerial views of the vast countryside dotted with circular bomas, you sense connectivity all around. The format is inspired by the nostalgic 12" vinyl record cover, paying homage to keeping the music (the story) alive. Signed artwork made from six vibrant layers of cut paper.
