ABOUT
Kenyan-American singer-songwriter Naomi Wachira grew up singing gospel music in a choir of family and friends. Inspired by the music of Tracy Chapman and Miriam Makeba, she wanted to follow suit, making the world a better place by writing music that is poignant and life-giving. She has received numerous accolades, including being named “Best Folk Artist” by Seattle Weekly. With each song, she creates a breathable and expansive space inviting all of us to rest, heal, and be reminded of our true identity. To date, she has released –“African Girl” (2012), “Naomi Wachira” (2014), “I am Because You Are” (2015)–and her latest offering, “Song of Lament” was released in 2017.
