May 2017 UK Tour
Solidifying herself at the top of the female hip hop game, the poetic wordsmith Akua Naru returns to the UK for another guaranteed sell-out tour.
Naru’s talent for story-telling along with classic boom bap hip hop sounds, socially conscious rhymes, jazz-soul elements, has rightfully garnered attention around the globe. Such attention has fluently translated from stage to record, with her debut album “…The Journey Aflame”, deemed a hip hop classic by critics from New York to Moscow, forging its way into the history books.
Being associated with 90’s hip hop movements, as well as acts inc.: Lauryn Hill & The Roots, Naru’s musical and poetic gifts have been appreciated among hip hop circles, and are amplified within her live performances.
Representing strongly when performing with The DIGFLO Band, a six-piece ensemble including drums, keys, saxophone/flute, bass, guitar, and turntables, Akua Naru and her band have a reputation for captivating audiences, hyping crowds, and inspiring many. Clearly, her music and performances are a testament to the legacy of soul music and the powerful trailblazing female artist tradition on which it builds.
Don’t miss Naru light up the stage in a city near you – tickets will fly out for this!
