SERRO

Bio

Kenyan Afro-fusion singer and songwriter Serro, is continuously building a name for herself as one of Kenya’s top live performers. Out to tell the African story, Serro fuses Benga with a Jazzy Afro-Pop sound laced with traditional Kenyan folk elements. Her brand is characterized by bold African facets inscribed in her lyrics, melodies, wear, and vocal delivery. A multi-instrumentalist (Guitar, Drums, and Percussion), Serro’s goal is to be “the go-to name when one thinks of live music in Africa.”

MUSIC: Serro's debut single "Rongai" produced by Polycarp ‘Fancy Fingers’ Otieno of Sauti Sol and directed by VjOne was released in 2016. After a brief hiatus to complete her music degree, Serro returned to the scene in 2019 with the release of “Okello”, "Ya Dunia" "Aheri" and the runaway hit "Kasyoki Wa Mitumba"; all produced by her longtime collaborator - Mutoriah. 2020 saw Serro hit a career milestone with the release of her 14-track debut album - KUWE. Written and sung in five African languages, the album encompasses the different spectrums of human emotions as told through the perspective of a young African lass.

RECOGNITION: In 2018 Serro was also spotlighted by Kenya's Standard Newspaper as one of the Kenyan artists set to take over. She also bagged a nomination for the ‘Best New Act’ at the Café Ngoma Awards in 2017. Her debut music video “Rongai” was listed under the ‘Top 20 Music Videos’ by Mpasho in 2016. At the beginning of 2015, Serro was featured by Kenya Buzz as one of the ‘Top 10 Female Artists to look out for’ in Kenya.

PERFORMANCE: Serro’s larger-than-life stage persona has seen her grace multiple stages alongside her 5-piece band – The Charactaz, including; Jamhuri Festival, Sondeka Festival, ONGEA Music Summit, The GoDown Gig, Pawa Festival, UTAM Festival, An Evening of Afro-Jazz, Cake Art Affair among others. In June 2016, Serro hosted her first solo concert dubbed Kasha at Safaricom’s Michael Joseph Center together with Kalahi. Besides pursuing her own solo career, SERRO has also lent her mellow yet powerful voice to Ricky na Marafiki band and Juma Tutu & the Swahili Jazz Band, both popular jazz bands in Kenya.

BACKGROUND: Born Hulda Adhiambo Serro on 31st December 1995 in Nairobi, Kenya, Serro has always enjoyed the support of her family in her pursuit of music. Daughter to a screen actor popularly known Washington in the TV Series: Makutano Junction, Serro attended Buruburu 1 Primary School and later Ngara Girls High School. It is while there that she started learning music theory and joined the Kenya Girls’ Choir. In 2015, Serro underwent a yearlong talent development program at the renowned Sauti Academy. She’d later join Kenyatta University to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Music where she graduated in 2016 with First Class Honors. In 2015, Serro had the privilege of being selected by the Music Faculty of Kenyatta University to represent the country at an intensive collaborative workshop held in South Africa.
