The songbird jump-started her career with her soulful acoustic album “Ninairobi” in 2009, followed by two single releases of the Afro-pop remixes to her songs “Wololo” and “Aheri” two years later. In 2014, a collaborative album with Kenyan contemporary Benga musician, Winyo, was released. This record titled “Yote Yote” has acted as a stepping stone in Nina Ogot’s career and her fans have embraced her as a versatile musician who has the rare agility and skill to incorporate both tradition and modernity into her musical expression.
For more than a decade, the vocalist and guitarist has performed as a trio band until recently in 2018 when a 13 piece band lineup was formed for an event in Cologne-Germany dubbed “Jambo Day” by the Treasures of Kenya Initiative. Together, the new team recorded Nina Ogot’s third album “Dala” in 2019, followed by a series of performances in both countries.
