Idd Aziz

Bio

Inspired by his father, an accomplished percussionist, performer and teacher, Idd Aziz's passion for music begun at the early age of 13. Everyday after school, he would join his father and other performers on stage at the Bomas of Kenya to entertain guests from all over the world.

By the age of 15 Idd Aziz was already touring world performing and discovering his voice, before settling in Trondheim, Norway. While in Norway, Idd Aziz grew his musical experiences through collaborations with renowned musicians of varying styles and genres including Heing Siumaro , the Trondheim Orchestra as well as African greats like Angelique Kidjo, Salif Keita, Alpha Blondy and Youssou N'Dour.

In 2014, Idd Aziz relocated back to Kenya and was immediately immersed in performances, collaborations and being one of the most sought after studio session and backing percussion players. He released his hit single 'Come Dada' featuring Kenyan hip hop artist Kaligraph Jones and was of the Kenyan delegation of musicians who performed at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC.

Since his return, Idd Aziz has maintained a busy schedule of performances at various events and festivals including the Lamu Art Festival, Wilder Festival, Pawa 254 Fest among others. He was also a member of the Coke Studio Africa house band in 2017. He has recorded and released radio hit singles including the acclaimed 'Kiswahili' in praise the Swahili language that is common in the East African region.

Over the years Idd Aziz has been exploring all aspects of his music, in an effort to use it as a tool in different ways including healing. He is passionate about ethnic and cultural music and its place in African society and is a proud representative of his Mijikenda culture.

Other than being one of the most distinctive vocalists in the region, Idd Aziz is also an accomplished and dynamic percussionist having learned from his father. He also plays the guitar and flute and is not shy to experiment with a variety of percussions from all across the African continent.
