Biography

With her inimitable, velvety voice, Nigerian-born via Italy singer, songwriter, actress, and activist Aimy is the quintessential embodiment of contemporary African world music. Her sound blends Afro-jazz, Afrobeat, highlife, and call-and-response African griot tradition, in an easy flowing, yet virtuosic performances. Her irresistible rhythms and melody and infectious joie de vivre unite audiences of diverse backgrounds.

Aimy has won fans in Europe, Africa, North America through her on-stage appearances with the likes of African musical legends Hugh Masekela, the Mahotella Queens, Miriam Makeba, and more... It has been Aimy’s passion since she started singing at age eleven to touch hearts and souls. From her mother, she gained an early education in the folklore of her people, the Bini, an interest she extended into traditional music, storytelling, and dance. Immigrating to Italy, she studied jazz music and interpretation, as well as theatre arts, crafting a sound that has become distinctly her own. Motherhood is an important theme that often appears in her lyrics, along with a deep concern for justice. Aimy has also been recognized internationally not only for her obvious talent but also for her commitment to end human trafficking, promotion of African Cultural Heritage, and for the deep sense of her Nigerian heritage, which gives a spiritual grounding to her work wherever she performs.
