The South London songwriter is a force of nature
Raised in Peckham but inspired from sounds further afield – Aadae is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new artists in the fertile musical hub of South East London.
In the past year, she’s released a number of off-kilter, unique singles that have drawn influence from across the globe. Drawing in elements of Classic Soul, Afrobeats and R&B, she creates complex rhythms inspired by her African heritage. The new single “Fly Free” is the perfect example of this. Complex bass parts intertwine with African percussion in a unique way, providing the foundation for her powerful topline.
Catch Aadae performing at Set Space in Dalston on Sunday 9th November
“The event is going to be an amazing combo of crowd sourced photographs of people from a variety a different backgrounds to celebrate how diverse and colourful London is and a soundscape and live performance that echoes this theme. On a very personal level, I will also be documenting my own experiences of South East London. I am inviting people into my way of seeing — I think it will be interesting as shine a light on some really unique subcultures. Get ready to see how I really tie my gele, how auntie patterns my fro with her Afro comb and ilarun, and how some of us worship in our white sutanas with bare feet… after all, they don’t call Peckham ‘little Lagos’ for nothing.”
