Musical Journey and AlbumsMusical Journey and Albums

Liz Ogumbo's music is a rich tapestry of influences, inspired by jazz, taraab, chakacha, blues, reggae, and hip hop. At the heart of her artistic expression is her "Kenyan Soul" or "KenSoul," embodying her roots, culture, and dedication to both music and fashion, along with her passion for Africa.

Her debut album, KenSoul, released to critical acclaim. It introduced her distinctive sound, blending various genres and languages, including Luo, Swahili, English, and French. This genre-agnostic approach continues in her latest album release, KenSoul, The Lotus Chapter, which explores her diverse musical influences and life experiences. The 12-track album builds on the strong foundation laid by KenSoul, showcasing her storytelling prowess, humour, and vocal versatility.
