Self-producing her own work and exploring new production techniques has led Elsy Wameyo to find her own style and control in sonic direction. This approach compliments a fusion of gospel and traditional sacred sounds that shape Elsy’s musical vision, alongside a force of contemporary hip-hop and R&B influences. Her comfort in her own voice is evidenced through poetic verses, which come to full form in an energetic stage show where Elsy conducts a full live band and draws the crowd deeper into the Nilotic story.
From years spent honing her self-taught creative talents across production, songwriting and singing, to relentless education and research, Elsy Wameyo now shares the fruits of her work, the glorious debut EP, Nilotic as an unmissable live rendition this August and September.
