Asa is Nigerian but was born in Paris. She became an artist in Lagos, fueled on old-school Soul, and was signed by a French label. She’s clearly one of the most exciting artists to have emerged in the last decade. She’s highly in-demand by festivals across the world and radios (with taste!) are giving her a special place on their playlists. She’s a whirlwind, she’s happiness, and she is a craze. She will be in Istanbul as a guest to İş Sanat.
She still has all the melodic grace she’s always been known for, but this time, it’s more troubling than ever. The songs on her new album Bed of Stone say much more than the emotions of Bukola Elemide, known as Asa. Her songs say a lot about our melancholy, our dreams, our thoughts and our reflections. It almost feels like they’ve have been part of our lives even before Asa wrote and sang them.
You may listen your melancholy, your dreams, your thoughts and your reflections live on May 7 at İş Sanat in Istanbul, Turkey. Tickets are on Biletix. Biletix Call Center (0 216 556 98 00).
