African Vocalist Musician Sings Spiritual and Soft Songs - Name?
December 31, 2021 12:18 AM   Subscribe

Can't remember and nothing is coming up in searches. He had first name and last, soft, melodic (very), I think there were African flutes in his songs, and IIRC he was Senegalese but can't be 100% sure. Not Youssou. Argh. Can anyone help me find him? Thank you.

No problem! A little more about the late Ayub Ogada here. He spent quite a lot of his life in the UK and seems to be better known aboard than in Kenya.

We've been doing a lovely meditative dance to Nyandolo and I've been wondering who the artist was, so, thanks.
