Fadhilee Itulya is from Kenya. He began his professional music career in 2008 when he was featured on the Nairobi Alliance Française compilation album “Spotlight on Kenyan Music”. He draws inspiration from a style of Kenyan guitar music called omutibo from the Luhya people of Western Kenya that is driving, syncopated, and gets people to dance like nothing else. His music has elements of acoustic folk, pop / dance and World music – making for a melange of good time music that is grounded in culture, community and care for the environment. Fadhilee counts Habib Koite (Mali), Ayub Ogada (Kenya) and Richard Bona (Cameroon) among his musical influences. His debut album Kwetu (meaning home in Swahili) features 14 vibrant tracks and includes Isukuti percussion and chants, showcasing the roots percussion style of Western Kenya. Besides his performing career, Fadhilee hosts a monthly concert series called 'Fadhilee's garage,’ and is the founder of Utam Festival (Kenya).
