Vocab: Live In Nottingham: Akua Naru
"Acoustickle is thrilled to bring Akua Naru back to Nottingham on Sunday 21st May. In collaboration with Saltbox Bar and Vince Jazz, we present a polemical Vocab special.
Akua Naru & The Digflo Band
"The female Gill Scott-Heron" returns to Nottingham with what promises to be an even more enchanting spoken word, hip hop, jazz and soul event.
Sprinkling her #BlackGirlMagic over our stage once again is the enchanting Akua Naru and her live band.
Since leaving us spellbound in April 2016, Ms Naru has toured the world, including Brazil; been in the studio with ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke; jammed with Yasiin Bey (Mos Def); and recently premiered a tribute to Toni Morrison via Okay Player.
We invite you to welcome Akua and the band to Saltbox Bar, Sunday 21st May.

Info provided by the Event Organiser
With classic boom bap hip hop sounds, socially conscious rhymes, jazz-soul elements, Germany based Naru has garnered attention and accumulated rave reviews. Being associated with artist movements such as the 90's hip hop era and acts such as Lauryn Hill & The Roots, Naru's musical and poetic gifts have been appreciated among hip hop circles and are amplified within live performance.
Representing strongly when performing with The DIGFLO Band, a six-piece ensemble including drums, keys, saxophone/flute, bass, guitar, and turntables, Akua Naru and her band have a reputation for captivating audiences, hyping crowds, and inspiring many. Clearly, her music and performances are a testiment to the legacy of soul music and the powerful trailblazing female artist traditon on which it builds.
