Maia is a seasoned artist in Kenya's contemporary musical landscape. Her magnetic vocals both in English and Kiswahili weave African Polyrhythms with Soul and Folk, creating a familiarity and warmth that transcends continents.
Her songs sing of love, life, new political horizons in Kenya, the plight of women across the world, and personal introspections of both the joy and solitude in not belonging to any single culture or community.
Maia has shared the stage with artists such as Keziah Jones, James Blunt, Habib Koite, Thandiswe, and Mafikizolo, and has toured in the USA, UK, Australia and East Africa. Festival performances have included Africa Utopia (UK), HIFA (Zimbabwe), Sauti za Busara (Zanzibar), Blankets & Wine (Kenya), Visa for Music (Morocco) and Mafrika Music Festival(NYC).
She has earned herself two African Academy Awards for her song 'Uko Wapi' and has just finished her new album set for release in 2017.
