About Shamsi

A little more about Shamsi…

Shamsi Music is a jazz & afro-jazz fusion band from Nairobi Kenya,which prides itself in creating memorable musical experiences that capture the heart, mind and soul. Formed in 2014, the band set the core of their musical journey as the desire to create music that mirrors the sound of their heartland, Kenya, and their Motherland, Africa.

In just two short years after their formation, and against all odds, Shamsi Music became the youngest band ever to be selected to play at Kenya’s biggest live event, The Safaricom International Jazz Festival. They quickly gained admiration and raving support from fans and critiques alike, with people quickly falling in love with their music. They proceeded to win the Café Ngoma Award for Best Jazz Act 2017. Their sound can be described as Kenyan folk jazz eclectically infused with a predominant afro jazz influence, enchanting melodies and solid African rhythms.

Shamsi is Swahili-Arabic for “Sun”. They desire to be a light to the world and
music industry, creating music that refreshes,inspires and gives hope, for God’s glory.
