"This lady is the keeper of the cool flow" said none other than Afrobeat icon Tony Allen about Akua Naru. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of seeing the ›First Lady of Global HipHop‹ and important representative of Conscious Rap live on stage knows why. Her music is evidence of political urgency and feminist, intellectual poetry. Her very personal tonal language is characterized by elements of soul, blues, jazz and hip-hop, including African influences. Together with her expressive voice, she creates a sound that unfolds a real pull.
The artist was born in New Haven, Connecticut (USA) and grew up in a working-class family. When she was seven years old, her father turned his back on the family. Tried after the painful lossakua narufirst started writing and spent a lot of time in church. Her grandmother was the director of the children's church service and her aunt led the church choir of the community. The experiences not only opened up the Afro-American traditions of oratorios and sacred music to Akua Naru, but also a world that was shaped by female energy, resilience and leadership skills. An uncle of the same age who was enthusiastic about hip-hop encouraged his niece to recite the poems she had written herself - in the style of the oratorios of her pastor - to the rhythm of instrumentals. What started as a game became Akua's first rap at the tender age of eight. During her studies she dealt in particular with the question of geographic and economic factors who are responsible to this day for the disadvantage of people of different skin color and destroy entire communities, as they saw every day at the example of their own place of residence. Akua Naru left the United States after witnessing a number of violent crimes. A two-year journey, during which she appeared again and again as a musician, took her first through Southeast Asia and China, before moving to Cologne for several years. Since Akua Naru has been researching rap music as a Nasir Jones Hiphop Fellow at Harvard University since 2018 and has consequently hardly been able to hold concerts, we are all the more pleased that she will be back on the stage in 2020! as she saw it every day using the example of her own place of residence.
