Oryema was born in Soroti, in the east of Uganda. His family were deeply knowledgeable about the countryâ€™s traditional cultures. Oryema, for example, was encouraged by his father to play the nanga (a seven-string traditional harp) and he also travelled around different parts of Uganda with his mother, a director of the national dance company The Heartbeat of Africa. Other members of the Oryema family were story-tellers, poets and musicians.
