Singing in English and a wide range of African languages, Somi has had a fascinating artistic evolution. Born in Illinois to immigrants from Rwanda and Uganda, she has spent the last decade building a career as a jazz vocalist, songwriter, and activist through transatlantic sonicism and storytelling. Her newest album, Petite Afrique — a daring, relevant refashioning of what “jazz” and “African music” mean — is inspired by the vibrant African immigrant community that has become a vital part of Harlem.
