Teni Set To Release New Single 'Afrodisiac'

Website: http://www.quitegreatmusicpruk.com/
Continuing in the traditions of Fela Kuti, Teni is now carrying the flame for feminine afrobeat. Described as Ďafrosoulí, Teniís music combines rhythms and melodies born in Africa with influences as wide as the legendary jazz singers Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, to Bob Marley, Kate Bush and Marvin Gaye. Developing her unique sound in the UK, Teni refined it through her ten years spent living in Nigeria. Tapping into the spirit of Felaís birthplace, Teni discovered much more inspirational African music and got to perform on occasion with Seun Kuti and Egypt 80í. Elsewhere, whilst in Nigeria, Teni worked as a fashion designer and helped build an ethical design house named the ĎHouse of Makedaí. Her message of African unity and development is rooted in her first-hand experiences and prestigious education from UCL and the School of Oriental and African Studies.

Despite her parentsí advice, Teni launched full-throttle into the making of her debut album. The sensational lead single ĎAfrodisiací perfectly showcases Teniís distinct and developed sound. Opening with cool rhythms and 70ís inspired, funky guitar melodies, Teniís sultry vocals soon take centre stage. An underpinning of synthesisers and bass guitar helps bring the vocals and catchy horn sections to the foreground. Evoking similarities with 90ís singer Sade and jazz great Sarah Vaughn, the song also hints at James Brown with the funk feel that is present. Certainly, Ďafrosoulí is a fitting description for Teniís music.

With the song already receiving backing from BBC Introducing, NME and Tony Allen (afrobeat drummer and Damon Albarn collaborator), much anticipation will be surrounding this release. Teni is surely set for a bright future with her album release only round the corner.

ĎAfrodisiací is out February 11th.
