About KenSoul:

In everything she does, Liz Ogumbo is a true original so it’s unsurprising to find that there is no easy category for the music that she’s been recording and releasing since 2010. In response to this, Liz created "The KenSoul Experience” – an all-encompassing description for this remarkable Afropolitan’s creative output and ongoing journey.

Liz’s music carries a playful, irresistible energy that is visible in her songwriting and performing, which passionately expresses a soul journey with musical roots that are anchored in Kenya’s Luo tradition. Also included in this powerful musical mix are Swahili - chakacha sounds, all carried by earthy vocals, percussive ohangla-inspired elements and humid, coastal beats and lyrics.

Listening to Liz’s music is both sensuous and unforgettable. We invite you to explore her KenSoul.
