iZAYA the Composer

iZAYA is an electronic artist, producer and performer based in Kampala, Uganda. His style of music is heavily influenced by African rhythms and Electronic soundscapes which birthed a genre called AFRO-EDM. Two of his compositions were used in Walt Disney’s Queen of Katwe and other films including 2 HBO sponsored documentaries.

He performs his compositions on stage using his laptop running Ableton Live and a few midi controllers; in conjunction with the tracks from his computer, he plays an assortment of instruments like; guitar, a talk box, Jembes and a keyboard synthesizer, which makes the performances semi-live.

Izaya occasionally features singers, rappers and sometimes poets in his performances. All of the songs performed are his original compositions.
