Tonight Adjoa celebrates UK/Ghanaian soul with timeless favourites, and songs from her acclaimed ‘Adinkra’ EP and forthcoming ‘Adinkra’ album, based on the theme of the Adinkra symbols of the Akan tribe of Ghana, her heritage. Born in the UK to Ghanaian parents, Adjoa creates her own style, by mixing her ‘frankly fabulous’ soul vocals with chants, mostly in the Ghanaian language of Twi, and vibrant traditional African rhythms, mainly from Ghana. Her gorgeous songs and the infectious energy of her musicians create music with great style.
Adjoa has played live in venues including Somerset House, the Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scotts Club, Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho and on the renowned Notting Hill Carnival World Music Stage. She has performed at massive venues & key events including London’s City Hall for the 50th anniversary of Ghanaian Independence, and for the UNHCR with the Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Community Gospel Choir. Adjoa’s music has been featured on BBC Radio, Jazz FM, Voxafrica TV, and she was interviewed live on London Live TV.
