BOADI & THE BANKU POWERS
Boadi is a singer/songwriter hailing from South London. He possesses a distinct nostalgic sound that's a fusion of R&B, Jazz and Afro-funk. Citing D’Angelo, Fela Kuti and Marvin Gaye among his top musical influences.
As an independent artist, Boadi has begun to orchestrate progressive strides forward in his young career, most notably being featured on COLORS, Sir Elton John’s Rocket Hour on Beats 1 and DJ Target’s BBC Radio 1Xtra Homegrown show. Boadi and ‘The Banku Powers’ (his live band) have had some memorable moments, that include performing headline shows to sold-out crowds at the Servant Jazz Quarters and the London Archspace.
Released in 2017, his sophomore EP 'AwoMaa’ is an exciting combination of smooth, soulful vocals with jazz undertones. On a more personal level, it also pays homage to the women who raised him.
