The Pamoja Odyssey is a series of
creative community and sailing experiences on board the Musafir,
bringing together filmmakers, designers, artists, musicians,
educators, and community organisers to build bridges and share
Along our journey, as Musafiri, we
will engage with our distant relatives in small coastal
communities to exchange in perspectives, transfer of ideas and
sharing of knowledge.
At each port we will immerse and
converse with the local communities, communicating with each
other through art, music and film, resulting in a collaborative
celebration of the experience - a film festival!
In its entirety, the Pamoja Odyssey is

there is no return journey aboard.
Alongside our Distant Relatives of
Kilifi Backpackers and Beneath the Baobabs, the Musafir is
getting into the festival spirit with some of our incredible
sundowner events and even a space at the festival !
You can find them in the Kisima area,
the mind body soul space, where they will welcome you to speak
openly about community, expression, peace, transcending
boundaries, and the role as individuals and as communities, can
take in changing the world.

Musafir is a word in Swahili, Arabic,
Persian, Hindi and Urdu meaning traveler. In the Romanian and
Turkish languages it means guest.
The Musafir Dhow is a platform for the
message of peace, freedom and unity; an ambitious project where
people who believe in this message can be active in its flow.
In order to achieve this we need
freedom of movement and freedom of thought.
We the Musafir have been building the
boat for the past six years and are now sailing and reaching out
to small coastal communities where we can exchange knowledge,
skills and consciousness with the people we meet there.
Sharing our time and energy can only
give a more clear understanding.
