FOR FANS OF: Amy Winehouse + Bo Saris + Erykah Badu
There is a major soul-princess hiding in Aarhus
Remember when Amy Winehouse was still alive. It was a time dominated by soul and funky vibes. Somehow not that many musicians continued that style in music to the same extent as electronic productions and the use of 90’s boy-band constellations took over once again. And that is a shame.
Regardless of the current mainstream trends to the use constellations (not to mention collectives and artists branding like never before) one local Aarhus-based girl has maintained the same traditional and classy use of soul under the moniker ANKAH.
Her sound can best be described as a mixture between soul, R&B and Hip-hop added with a magnificent voice. It is an experimenting yet vintage use of music as a tool for support of her beautiful voice. While she is still a somewhat secret character in music, She has already supported one of the most blooming Dutch artists at the moment — the soul singer Bo Saris – when he visited Lille VEGA in Copenhagen earlier this year. And performed at SPOT OFF 2014 this year during SPOT Festival in town.
Whether you’re a fan of soul music or not doesn’t matter. You should still check her out for the sake of her mindblowing talent. Remember to stop by here Facebook.
