Rainier Arts Center presents Naomi Wachira
Rainier Arts Center is thrilled to kick off our 2016 music series with folk singer Naomi Wachira!
From her bio: Shes making music inspired both by the music she discovered in America and the music she grew up with in Kenya, not a Western conception of how African music should sound.
The daughter of a Kijabe pastor, Naomi joined the traveling family band at five years old, spreading the good word through gospel song. This explains the beautiful harmonies on her album, for as she says In my family everyone sang and everyone knew their part. Harmony was second nature for us. Larger African concepts also play a part in Naomis music, like the Zulu idea of Ubuntu. This concept means I am because we are, and its a community-based worldview that focuses on caring for each other.
Tickets are $10 online (service fees not included) and $10 at the door (cash or credit only).
