Apio Moro

Apio Moro is a young Ugandan performing artist. Born to artistic parents in the teaching profession, in Tororo the land of the great rock of eastern Uganda, she sings and writes in Japadhola with a touch of English. Her sound features soulful sounds that immediately draw you into her world guided by a very strong Luo-accented voice, telling stories from her society and life.Down to earth as she maybe, she believes her purpose in life is “…to tell people to NOT be afraid to live.’ This Lou woman also believes we should be born, find our purpose and deliver on that purpose. She was drawn to music even as a child and was never afraid of the criticism that came with it.
