Round About Midnight: Ayo

  • Music, Jazz

Time Out says

Joy Olasunmibo Ogunmakin, known professionally as Ayo, is a singer and songwriter with Romanian and Nigerian roots, who's currently based in Paris. She's got one of the most seductive voices on the international scene of African-American music, a sound that's been compared to Erykah Badu and Sade. And now she's back in Barcelona for the first time in five years with her band to present her fourth album, 'Ticket to the World' (2013), a new forum for showing off her style, which plays around with reggae and jazz, but that also manages to blend perfectly with sounds of folk, country and rock.
