About

Mwalimu Express
Mwalimu Express was created in 1997 by DJs Rita Ray and Max Reinhardt. Envisioned as a mythical
train travelling the African continent, the original weekly sessions were based at the Bread and
Roses pub in Clapham, blending live music, DJs, food and even board games. In 2000 they
introduced a film programme, curated by the ScreenStation Collective, showcasing a mix of short films, documentaries and features.
Now held at Rich Mix on the third Sunday of every month from September to May, Mwalimu
Express has built a loyal following of all ages and includes dance workshops, market stalls, street
food, bar and a pop-up library.

Its always a free entry gig, its always family friendly.....a splendid time is guaranteed for all.

 

Mwalimu means teacher in Swahili and it was the title given to the legendary Julius Kambarage Nyerere (13 April 1922 – 14 October 1999), Tanzanian statesman,  first President of Tanzania and previously of Tanganyika, from 1960 until his retirement in 1985.

 

Mwalimu is pronounced Mwah (as in a short kiss), Lee (as in Majors) Moo (a short one, not a
moooo!)
