Liz Ogumbo-Regisford; Performing artist and Lyricist
KenSoul is my Kenyan Soul that allows me to express myself and hare my stories. Story telling sounds like a thing from the past, but for me, it is the base of my music as I stylishly weave stories of my Kenyan origin and global influences into a 12-track colorful quilt of Kenyan Luo, Swahili, English and French song writing and vocal expression.
It is expressed through a playful energy that passionately expresses a soul journey whose musical roots are anchored in my Luo tradition and branch out to Swahili -chakacha sounds carried by earthy vocals; percussive Ohangala-inspired sounds and coastal beats & lyrics, humid, sensuous and unforgettable.
The journey continues through jazzy tones to nu-soul energy to reggae ‘riddims’ riding on spoken word, earthy vocals into a unique sound, dubbed KenSoul; an invitation to explore a contemporary African musical expression – A new voice on the African musicscape.
