Introducing: Somi

somi5Somi Kakoma was born and raised in the USA but her family history is rooted in Uganda and Rwanda. She describes her music as “holistic New African Jazz”. “Enganjyani” (from her LP “If the rain come first“) features South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela and is one of these songs that touches you somewhere inside … somewhere where only jazz can reach you.

She is currently in Lagos to work on her new LP. Watch the space.
