Somi says
East African vocalist and songwriter, Somi, has begun to make an indelible mark on the jazz vocal scene. After moving from New York to Nigeria for an 18-month stay in search on new inspiration and direction, Somi released her Sony/Okeh debut album, The Lagos Music Salon, which topped the jazz charts in the U.S. The socially informed and adventurous vocalist sings with a soulful beauty about her experiences in Lagos and the album covers a broad swath of styles including fast-paced grooves combined with Afro-pop sensibilities. Somi returns to Portland after stunning a sold-out crowd, opening up for Bebel Gilberto at the past Portland Jazz Festival.

“A potent brew from the first sip to the last drop.” – NPR
