It has been a long time since I listened to such deep, emotional and authentic Folk/Soul music. Naomi Wachira‘s music takes all of your attention – in seconds. Born and raised in the small town of Kijabe, which is situated in the Kenyan Great Rift Valley, Wachira, she started to develop her music passion at the early age of 5 when she joined her parents’ choir. Now, she has become one of the leading Folk voices from Kenya. It’s not only the melody, the rich lyrics that is so fascinating about her music, it’s also the sincere mission of Naomi Wachira to create music for everyone: “To write music that is applicable to anyone regardless of their education, beliefs, or socio-economic status”. The world out there should listen more to Naomi Wachira.
Listen to her excellent self-titled LP, her EP ‘African Girl‘ and watch the video for her breath-taking single ‘African Girl‘.
