Ogada has been performing since the late 1970s and may be best known
for his mastery of the traditional east African stringed instrument,
the nyatiti. His music can be heard on the soundtrack of the 2005 film
The Constant Gardener, as well as on his collaborations with Susheela
Raman on several tracks on her "Salt Rain" album. Ogada also performed
at the July 2005 Live 8 concert as an opening act.
