About The KTO Project & Kanya Arts

The KTO Project is an ensemble inspired by the power of music to express strong feelings and unite communities. Band leader and San Francisco Bay Area native Kelly Takunda Orphan has been singing, dancing, drumming, and writing songs for a few decades, often collaborating with the finest artists from Zimbabwe.

KTO is in partnership with Kanya Arts' founder, Salani Wamkanganise naGaadza to provide mbira instruments and other instruments and artistic wear for the world to gain a deeper understanding of Zimbabwean music, art and culture.
