Born in 1956 he recorded his 3rd album in 2015 Kodhi: Trevor Warren's Adventures with Ayub Ogada. He is a descendant of the Luo people of Western Kenya and has sustained a career as a solo musician, in bands and recording soundtracks for films such as The Constant Gardener.
In 1986, Ayub set his sights on the UK and traveled to London clutching his Luo nyatiti (an eight-string traditional lyre). He scraped a living by busking on the city’s streets and the London underground. In 1988, he was approached and asked to play at Peter Gabriel’s WOMAD Festival in Cornwall. His breakthrough came there. Perchance a band cancelled and Ayub’s ten-minute slot stretched to a full set. Among the won over fans that day was Peter Gabriel himself.
