KeruBo is a Vermont-based singer/songwriter born in Kendu Bay, Kenya. She has been a working musician for more than 20 years. Her musical influences range from traditional African music to gospel, blues, and Afro-jazz. She was a background vocalist and dancer for legendary Afro-Jazz artists such as the late Achieng Abura and Suzanna Owiyo. They have been the strongest influences in her love for Afro-Jazz and the World Music genre.
Her debut album titled "Hali ya Utu" is Swahili for the state of humanity. KeruBo challenges the human condition and the need to reconnect to what "utu", or brotherhood really means.
The album is a culmination of years of writing and performing that speaks to KeruBo's mission for social justice. Every song tells a story, from lamenting the struggles of life, to encouraging words of self-acceptance.
