"Somi's songs gracefully fuse African-tinged grooves, supple jazz singing and compassionate social consciousness; they're both serious and seductive."
The New York Times

Superb jazz chanteuse Somi blends modern jazz, African music, and the singer-songwriter tradition, combining the musical and cultural worlds that resonate with her as an African and American woman. An Illinois-born resident of Harlem, she is the daughter of immigrants from Uganda and Rwanda. Highly regarded as both a scholar and artist, Somi is a TED Senior Fellow and the founder of New Africa Live, a nonprofit that champions African artists.
