A revolutionary Kenyan musician and singer-songwriter, who stands as the only female Orutu player in East Africa. The single-stringed fiddle originating from the Luo Community in Western Kenya was a taboo for women to play, but Labdi has reclaimed it with an infusion of indigenous Kenyan sounds (the taarab, ohangla, mwomboko and benga), soul, house and jazz. Labdi was featured in Five East African Artists You Need To Hear by Dazed.
