Mwanaisha grew up on the coastal region of Kenya - where the growth of Swahili culture bred a unique style of music called taarab. As a genre, taarab music combines elements of African percussion with Arabic rhythms.
She was working as a house girl when her melodic voice and prolific song writing skills were first brought to the attention of Mombasa-based UK producer Andrew ‘Madebe’ Burchell of Jikoni Studio.
Taking the name Nyota Ndogo (Kiswahili for Little Star) she has been collecting fans of her eclectic East African sound for over 7 years now. Nyota’s vocals are sweet and compelling; while her music has a unique, soulful-yet-funky backing beat, mixed with the versatile style of Taarab.
