Staff

Musical Director – Baraka Paul Issabu

Administrator / Accountant – Invyoleta Mwakiwone

Invyoleta was introduced to music through her father who was a church choirmaster and also taught Mganda traditional dance from Southern Tanzania. She was a member of the school band and is an accomplished traditional dancer (Ngoma za kiasili). She believes the Action Music Academy program will make a big contribution to the professionalization of the music industry thereby increasing employment opportunities for young musicians but she is also passionate about exploring ways to use the industry for the benefit of different communities in Tanzania. She is also committed to using music to raise awareness of issues like gender and empowerment (especially amongst girls and women) and to contribute to political stability. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Commerce (Accounting) from the University of Dar Es Salaam as well as an SAP/ERP certification. She did her practical training at the Arusha City Council Accounting Department and worked as a volunteer at Tai Tanzania. She gained more experience in accounting and administration at Mkundi Promotion Ltd and the Desire Park Hotel before joining the Action Music Academy team.
