Tshila Singer-songwriter and producer Tshila was born in Kampala, Uganda. Inspired by the influence she could have through music, she taught herself to play guitar and started to experiment with her own sound. She recorded and self-produced her first album, Sipping From the Nile in 2006. The album gained recognition from music critics around the world. In 2007, the BBC World Service conducted a talent search and named her one of the 20 best unsigned artists in the world. She went on to tour and performed her music worldwide at festivals in Africa, Europe and the United States, including the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, DC. “The mix of traditional African sounds with poetry and hip-hop works perfectly for Tshila.” – BBC World Service
