iZAYA is an electronic artist, producer and performer from Kampala, Uganda. His style of music is influenced by Afrobeat, Ugandan cultural rhythms and Electronic music.
His music birthed a genre called Afro-EDM which fuses African rhythms, arrangement styles and soundscapes from electronic dance music (EDM). His music has featured on a number of acclaimed projects such as Walt Disney’s ‘Queen of Katwe’.
iZAYA exclusively performs his original compositions on stage – He performs not as a DJ traditionally would by playing backing tracks over the entire duration of a set, but rather semi-live which means he plays musical instruments like guitar, fiddle, drums and keyboard synthesizers in conjunction to the tracks from his computer that runs Ableton Live.
