Ajak Kwai

Ajak Kwai’s music is inspiring and soulful, infused with funky afro-beats representing the depth and richness of her South Sudanese roots. Her performances are filled with vibrant sounds and her distinctive voice has mesmerised audiences nationally and internationally. Redefining the boundaries of live performance and electronic music, Camille Feghali fuses the skills and instruments of classical Arabic music with experimental soundscapes to forge his own musical path.
