Her message: adore life, do not embrace violence, learn and love. Music is, in fact, the glue to this joyous way of living. So listen up!

Whether she’s tackling difficult issues like domestic violence or social justice, singer-songwriter Naomi Wachira strives to tell her audience a story in a respectful, dignified and honest way. Naomi draws from her personal experiences and plunges into the depths of vulnerability to narrate her struggles and transformation, making each song she writes feel like an intimate invitation to her trust and friendship. While her passion for music is palpable, her belief in every word she sings is best validated watching her live, when she becomes so absorbed in her lyrics that you have no choice but to re-live the story with her.If ever I witnessed a person that was living their purpose, surely that moment was meeting Naomi.
