KeruBo's Passion

KeruBo sings African folk music and Afro-jazz, from slave spirituals, African laments, civil rights songs, story songs, gospel songs, and beyond.

Her influences come from generations of music artists and songwriters but more particularly – Achien’g Abura, Miriam Makeba, Dorothy Masuka, and Nina Simone. She feels that these notable, strong-minded, female singers effectively used their music as a powerful medium for bringing awareness and rebuking social injustices.

They told human truths as they saw them without worrying about consequences. KeruBo’s music is about preserving her culture and heritage while highlighting social issues affecting vulnerable minority groups such as women and children.
