Awori & Twani

Awori & Twani (CH, FR, UGA)


Le Petit Canyon

Access to this project require the Covid Cetificate, more.

Born and raised in Uganda, Awori was first exposed to music in her family and in school during her tender years. Since then, every person she met along the way contributed to polishing her art. In 2021, she released Ranavalona, an EP that is both sensitive and activistic. Composed with the beatmaker Iyonnais Twani, the record is a homage to the eponymous Malgasy Queen who was a figure of feminist determination that fervently opposed colonialism.The late Queen instilled confidence in Awori and fueled the artist’s internal drive. Awori’s music is a cry for independence, freedom and panafrican resistance wrapped in soul, R’n’B and rap.
