Vocalist, songwriter

Kwame Rīgīi is a renowned Kenyan musician who describes his music as urban folk. This award-winning vocalist has been in the music industry for over a decade and has released four albums. An electrifying performer with a distinct sound and peerless range, over the years Kwame has galvanized a sizeable base in Kenya and the Kenyan diaspora. But his body of work covers a wider land: Kwame is a passionate teacher of the culture and traditions of the Kikuyu people. He runs a cultural centre named Tūrī a Mūmbi (“we belong to Mūmbi,” Mūmbi being the mother of the Kikuyu people) in the scenic setting of Tigoni, outside the capital, Nairobi.
