Introducing: Sophie Nzayisenga

sophie 2This music is like a treasure. Sophie Nzayisenga learnt to play the Inanga, a traditional Rwandese instrument, from her father since the age of six. Now she is the leading female Inanga Player in East Africa and signed to the record label Rafiki Records. I admire the intimacy of her voice, one that reminds me on Oumou Sangare. I hope Sophie Nzayisenga will soon release more music. You will definitely find it here.

Listen first to ‘Niyangezi‘ one of her most popular songs and eight other brilliant songs. Watch also how she is playing the Inanga in the video below
