The Jazz Cafe

With the release of her 2011 debut album, “The Journey Aflame”, Akua Naru entered the scene, a titanic force of Liberation politics on beats, a true wordsmith whose music, deeply nuanced, poetic and wise, centres the experiences of Black women through rhyme, along a sonic spectrum from jazz to soul.

Naru has worked with Tony Allen, Eric Benét, Angelique Kidjo, Tuneyards, Questlove, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and more. Known for electrifying performances spanning across continents, she has rocked shows in more than fifty countries across five continents with her 6-piece+ band. Her artistry is a testament to the legacy of soul music and the powerful, trailblazing Black woman artist tradition upon which it builds.
