Nyokabi Kariuki (she/her) is a Kenyan composer and pianist/vocalist currently based in the US, who recently graduated with a B.M. in Music Composition and minor in Creative Writing from NYU. Her sonic imagination is ever-evolving, with compositions ranging from classical contemporary to film, choral, and experimental pop; and further includes explorations into (East) African musical traditions. She has been commissioned by multiple performers and ensembles including the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Men’s Ensemble and Chromic Piano Duo, and several of her collaborations of with filmmakers, choreographers and other visual artists have been seen at events including the Out of Africa Film Festival (Nairobi, Kenya), Melbourne Fringe Festival (Australia) and most recently at Lincoln Center’s Dance on Camera Festival (New York). Her art seeks to bridge her many influences — from her African roots & upbringing to her Western classical training — together into a mélange of accessible, evocative, and meaningful art.
