“Ruth Mathiang is one of the rising stars of African music in Toronto. She comes from a musical family, where both her parents were musicians in their youth. Starting with musical weekends where her family would gather around and sing songs, she followed her parents’ footsteps by joining musical clubs and composing and singing her own songs in high school. In Kenya, she performed with local musicians, in styles ranging from traditional music to hip hop. Her CDs were well received and led to performances in many local and international events in Canada and the States, including events such as “The Lost Boys and Lost Girls Conference” held in Phoenix, Arizona, and the Hot and Spicy musical festival in Toronto. 
Ruth’s songs represent her hopes and dreams for the world, and especially her home country.”
