This 50min audio recording from the Silent Room was collected from 5 cities and seven sites within these cities (Nairobi, Lamu, Kisumu, Isiolo and Nyeri). Recorded over a period of two years, this audio is a sample of over 1500 voices that are answering questions about what it actually means to be Kenyan. (Spoken in English and Kiswahili).

The audio was part of the exhibition at the National Museum of Kenya which ran from Novemeber 2015 to March 2016.
The audio and Silent Room fabrication was made possible through the assistance of Amin Elchie of Virani Media.
