Members of the Tanzania Albinism Collective

Members of Northern Tanzania's neglected albino community led by Grammy- winning producer Ian Brennan

Members of the Tanzania Albinism Collective's official bio

In the summer of 2016, Grammy-winning producer Ian Brennan travelled to northern Tanzania to work with members of the neglected albino community. None had previously played an instrument or written a song but 18 of them, ranging in age from 24 to 57, joined Brennan’s workshop.

They came up with a set of songs written in the local dialects of Kikirewe and Jeeta, many of them dealing with themes of loneliness, although resilience and triumph also prevail.
