THE ADA CREATIVE MISSION
We strive to produce the most exciting underground live music in the region, to challenge the status quo and create a platform from which emerging artists may develop their craft. Our mission is to drive integrity into the production of live music from East Africa, so as to help develop Kenyan and East African musics standing on the world scene.
After visiting The Yard on Parklands Road in Westlands back at the turn of 2016, Peng Chen showed us around the site. Upon visiting the former kitchen of the build, we noticed that there was already an inner room, a perfect space for a drum booth and live room. It took us one month to finish the soundproofing and development work and by March 2016 we were up and running.
Since then, ADA Creative Studios has been host to some of the top names in Kenyan music, including: Gilad, Dela, Nyashinski, Nameless, Mercy Masika, Alisha Popat, Jua Cali, Blinky Bill, EA Wave, and Nazizi to name a few!
ADA is fast becoming the location for top artists to refine their live sound and to capture an exciting and authentic feel to recordings.
