Annette Ngongi a.k.a. Seghito is an afro jazz, soul and blues artist based in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. She started singing and performing live around 2008 at the famous Music school named Tanzanian House of Talent (THT).
The band gets inspiration from famous African traditional and jazz artists like Fela Kuti and Miriam Makeba, and western modern jazz artists like Amy Winehouse to create tunes that are both versatile, entertaining and artistic.
Seghito who is the lead singer was the winner of the Jahazi Jazz artist award in 2012. What differentiates Seghitos music style is her strong vocals shaped by live performing and vocal training and her energy on that stage, she fuses jazz, traditional and afro blues and reggae to a new level .
Set to release her album mid next year she plans on touring and meeting more local and international artists, and performing East African festivals. She is working on releasing a traditional jazz album which will be a fusion of Modern jazz and some authentic local music from Iringa,Morogoro and Tanga.
