Naomi Wachira was born and raised in a musical family in a small town called Kijabe, which is located on the Kenyan Great Rift Valley. At age 5 she joined her parents’ choir, which spurred her love affair with music as a way to not only understand the world, but also express her introverted self. (Facebook info )
