Born and named after her great grandmother ‘Elizabeth Loye” who was a singer and performer throughout her life, Liz ‘Loye’ Ogumbo began singing at about the age of four.

Alongside, she is an established fashion designer under her label, “Liz Ogumbo and currently runs a showroom boutique & fashion/ styling consultancy. “The Ken-Soul Experience captures me today, my roots and culture, my contribution to music & fashion & my passion for Africa."

Her journey exemplifies the birth of a beautiful colorful African butterfly from its Chrysalis and its quest tospread its wings and fly in pursuit to share her story. Expressed in Luo, Swahili, English & French through her album ‘KenSoul,’ her Kenyan soul & her life experiences have developed this African girl child into a global soul instrument.
