A complex, constantly evolving, musical relationship now in its fifth year, Owiny Sigoma band have produced music in both Kenya, for their self-titled 2009 album, and in London with the second Power Punch LP.

The group features Nyatiti master Joseph Nyamungu and Lou percussionist Charles Owoko, both from the Nyanza Province in Western Kenya, as well as London-based musicians Tom Skinner (drums), Jesse Hackett (vox/keys) and Louis Hackett (bass).
