Since she was a child, Somi has used music to explore her identity as a Rwandese-Ugandan who grew up in the United States. Somi identifies deeply with her cultural roots, especially the idea she was taught while very young: that everyone has a song worth hearing. Somi specializes in jazz music. Her latest album is Somi: Red Soil in my Eyes. Dick talks to Somi about how her intercontinental family helps inspire her music.
