Somi will be returning to Pori Jazz for the second time. Her international origins can be heard in her music; her family comes from Rwanda and Uganda while she was born and raised in Harlem, New York City. Somi has got the skill to entertain while being educational - her songs can be catchy while making a statement. If you listen closely, you can hear the influence of traditional African music, jazz, and soul which, in the hands of the remarkable musical talent turn into an irresistible product. Her first performance at the Pori Jazz Festival in 2015 was so effective that it’s time for a second round. Her latest album, Petite Afrique, came out last year.
