Somi Brings the Sounds of Lagos to the City

On a drizzling mid-January evening in a dimly lit classic bar lounge on avenue A, Somi brought the sounds of Lagos, Nigeria to New York City. Reminiscent of Nina Simone's wistful melodies and soulful voice, Somi’s sound is a unique variation on the classic jazz theme. Her style is spiced up with exotic Afro-beat percussion rhythms and sounds that could best be described as tribal hails.

Just Joe

Just Joe’s self-titled, three-track solo EP dons a wistfully passionate sound through soaring vocals and touching piano riffs. Reminiscent of Ronnie Van Zandt’s powerful interpretation of classic rock ballads, the album features piano passages that Joe interprets with verve. He’s honed his skills on the keyboard since his mother taught him the secrets of the keyboard at five years old.
