“Music is the thing that brings me joy, it’s the thing that brings me peace. It’s the thing that makes me feel completely whole with myself.” ~ Naomi Wachira
Naomi Wachira is a Kenya-born musician who now lives in the Seattle area.
I first became aware of Naomi when I attended a house party/fundraiser that featured the band, Mokoomba (from Zimbabwe). Although Naomi didn’t perform that night, I couldn’t help but notice her presence. She was and is this incredibly confident and elegant-looking woman. She literally glided through the small crowd. I had heard of her so when I saw her there, I knew who she was.
Shortly after that event, a friend introduced us over email and Naomi was kind enough to come to my Seattle home to record this episode.
Please hang with me through this whole conversation because
