The jazz vocalist Somi - born in Illinois to parents who emigrated from Rwanda and Uganda - discovered her musical identity traversing the cultural bridge between America and Africa. Her 2020 recording, Holy Room, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album and won the 2021 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocal Album.

Somi’s newest project is Zenzile: The Reimagination of Miriam Makeba, a deeply personal tribute to the legendary, groundbreaking South African singer and activist who turned 31 years of exile imposed on her by the apartheid regime in her native country into a career of global triumph and influence.
