After months of social media hype, VI MUSIC is happy to announce the official date for the release of the much-anticipated EP of its first artiste, afro-jazz sensation, Adomaa. ‘Afraba the EP’ is finally set to be released online on Sunday, the 31st of January, 2016.
Afraba the EP is a compilation of 6 songs that represents Adomaa’s first original music project. It features songs that are intended to showcase Adomaa’s versatility as a musician, while still maintaining, in varying degrees, her core afro-jazz style. She therefore plays with different musical genres from afrobeat and highlife to jazz and pop, and even throws in a bit of rock music. The songs range from slow to groovy to up-tempo, but still reflect the kind of artiste Adomaa is and the values she stands for.
‘For the entire team, this project was also about challenging ourselves to go outside our comfort zone and experiment, most of all having fun with the creative process, and this is what has produced this body of work. ‘Afraba the EP’ is not just a music album, it is a full artistic experience, and a journey we are proud to take listeners along’ – Evans Offori (CEO – VI Music).
The EP is produced by Reynolds ‘The Gentleman’ Addow, with live instrumentation predominantly provided by the versatile band Fra!, also signed to VI Music. Below is the official track list:
‘Afraba is my personal journey, and I hope it inspires and challenges you to follow your heart despite the limitations you think you have. It starts with your mind!’ – Adomaa.
