AWORI is a Swiss-Ugandan rapper, singer & songwriter. She was raised in Kampala, Uganda where her late grandfather, an avid music lover, encouraged her to take on a musical practice. She wrote her first songs at 9 years old and regularly presented them on the school stage, in addition to performing dance and theater. At the age of 11, she moved to Switzerland to live with her mother, adapting to her new surroundings through poetry and song.
While at high-school, she co-founded the band Kami Awori, formerly known as CaramelBrown. In addition to being the lead singer & songwriter, she also developed most of the bands’ visuals, photographing and/or conceptualising everything from album artwork to music videos. The band gained a local following performing at local swiss festivals (i.e Royal Arena) and venues, and toured with artists like DENA, Manthe Ribane, FAKA & DJ LAG.
AWORI went solo in 2018 & is currently working on various projects with artists from the African diaspora as well as artists on the African continent.
