Nina Ogot

Bio

Nina Ogot is a Kenyan Afro-fusion musician, composer, and guitarist who incorporates both tradition and modernity in her artistic expression.

She started her musical career with her soulful acoustic album ‘Ninairobi’ in 2009 followed by two single releases of the Afro-pop remixes to her songs ‘Wololo’ and ‘Aheri’ two years later. In 2017, a collaborative album with Kenyan contemporary benga musician Winyo was released.

In 2011, Nina received a Kalasha Award for Best Original Score. Since then, she has braced several international stages including Afro-Asia Festival in Kerala, India, Bayimba Festival in Kampala, Uganda, Moshito Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the OneBeat musical and cultural exchange programme where she utilised the American platform to advocate for the plight of the Kenyan street child.

Her efforts and that of the Kuruka Maisha Foundation did no go unrecognised, as they were awarded with the prestigious American National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards (NASAA), a project initiated by former first lady Michelle Obama.

Nina will be launching her third album ‘Dala’ (Home) in September 2019 with a series of live performances in Kenya and Cologne, Germany. 'Dala' is inspired by African music giants such as Kenya's Mzee Ngala, Fadhili Williams and Daudi Kabaka as well as Joseph Kabasele (Congo), Fela Kuti (Nigeria), Manu Dibango (Cameroon).
