What a great pleasure to have our old friend Anna Mwalagho in the studio this week to discuss her ever expanding life and career. Anna is a DC-based Kenyan poet, actress, songwriter, bandleader, dancer, activist, philanthropist and comedian. She has shared the stage with legends like Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi and performed at prestigious venues across the US for over a decade. We talked about her early years as an immigrant in the US cutting teeth at DC open mics, and about the struggles and rewards inherent in the life of a performing artist. You can catch Anna with her killer band or performing solo as a Kenyan poet and comedian around the DMV by checking the website below. Her positive spirit always inspires!
