GMC Records is a multi-purpose studio space in Kigali, Rwanda that acts as part school, part business, and part cultural center where Turi Kumwe members can come to develop creative skills and collaborate with professional and aspiring artists. Local youth use the space to produce original music, photography, and video, as well as to relax and study in our library, explore the Internet, watch films, and communicate with friends and family abroad.
Our record label, GMC Pro, is a platform for our young artists to bring their message to the world. The label and the studio space are completely youth run and employ a number of hard-working young leaders. The studio also generates revenue to support many of the activities that go on there, such as guitar/piano/production lessons, English tutoring, TOEFL assistance, and a children’s storytime.
The studio is a space is where Turi Kumwe members can come together as family and feel at home.
