Singer/songwriter Somi is one very busy lady. She was born in Illinois to parents from Rwanda and Uganda. She released her debut album Eternal Motive in 2002. She recorded her second album Red Soil In My Eyes at the same time she was earning a Masters degree. Red Soil In My Eyes is a soulful celebration of her Rwandese and Ugandan heritage that fantastically speaks of returning Home.
