Nyinomugisha / Bio

Granddaughter of the late E.W. Oryema, Nyinomugisha was born and raised in Uganda. As a little girl, her passion for culture and music started when the family fled into exile, shortly after her grandfather was murdered by a brutal military regime in 1977. Life at home was then only based on Bible studying and music.
In the following years to come she toured around as a traditional dancer with "Aumaling Heartbeat" before joining Namasagali College, until she moved to Germany. For the last 5 years she´s been involved in different cultural projects in Germany. She´s not only in the studio for her projects, but also works as a backup vocalist for different artists." Labongo Lewich" is her first album and is out now. It´s a crossover of Northern Uganda traditinal Luo music and Western jazzypopmusic. 6/8 rythmes played into 4/4 time signature. One can hear that Nyinomugisha is truely keeping to her roots because there are a lot of traditional instruments running in the background as basics. She has kept her vocals quite traditional and with the language she loves most-Luo, she´s out to take us on a journey to remember!!!
