Established in 2006, in Malindi, on the shores of the coast of Kenya, three men bound by their passion for music came together and formed what would soon be known as the music group 'Kagomaz'. Fyam and Welo form this fantastic trio that boasts three lyricists and songwriters. The name Kagomaz means 'to strike' in the traditional Kiswahili, and this is essentially what the trio did. Through seeing the moral decay inherent in society, Fyam and Welo made the conscious decision to take a stand against a lesser life, and in 2006 Kagomaz made the move to the capital of Kenya. In the six years since their arrival in Nairobi, Kagomaz have marked their style as authentic, versatile, and eclectic. Through an innate appreciation of their cultural roots, the melody of their music transcends translation and speaks to the heart. With a musical repertoire that boasts nine releases and seven music videos, their debut album entitled 'Mwanzo wa Kazi' (set for release in 2012) is destined to position Kagomaz as staples in the music industry. Driven by passion, Kagomaz released their first single in 2006 and have just released their ninth single of their debut album.

The song 'Yuka' propelled them to make a mark in the music industry, and in December 2011, Kenya took notice of Kagomaz, and the group walked away with two awards in two separate award shows. They won the awards for 'Best Group of the Year' at the 'Coast Awards' and 'Nzumari Awards'. This certainly proves to be a sign of things to come for the talented trio. With determination, Kagomaz are already working on their second album.

What Kagomaz can promise you is a trio of vibrant and gifted artists, each with their own individual strengths. Each performance and each song that they produce brings an infusion of harmony, lyrics that speak to the soul, and a performance that is luminous in its essence and electrifying in its delivery.
