It is a simple yet ingenious idea to harness the power of rhythm and percussion to power a battery. 12 minutes of shaking for an hours worth of electricity. Sudha Kheterpal hopes to bring power to millions of people in Kenya who have none.
Sudha Kheterpal is a pioneering percussionist, the heartbeat of the dance band Faithless for fifteen years.
The energy generated from performance, something she is aiming to share. Sudha has designed a shaker that's powered by kinetic energy. The more you play it, the more electricity it can produce.
Her aim is to distribute the finished product to thousands of people who do not have access to electricity in Kenya. If enough people show an interest in her project, Sudha hopes to take the shaker to other countries around the world where people do not have access to electricity.
