LABDI

Bio

Labdi is a singer-songwriter and African single-stringed fiddle (Orutu) instrumentalist from Kenya.

Her vision is to popularise African music culture, sounds and instruments and to re-introduce them to the world. Labdi represents the growing population of young African artistes taking up indigenous instruments and by taking up the Orutu, she currently stands as the only female playing the instrument, as it was reserved only for men in the past.

Labdi experiments with indigenous Kenyan sounds such as Taarab, Ohangla, Mwomboko and Benga and the music she experienced growing up in two big cities, (Nairobi and Kisumu).She has performed at various international and local festivals and concerts, eg Oslo Afro Arts Festival-Norway, NyegeNyege-Uganda ,GMA Addis Ababa , Jazz Cafe-London, Mama's Kitchen -Manchester, 24 Kitchen street -Liverpool and many more.
