A charismatic singer-songwriter who was born in London, England of Nigerian and Zimbabwean heritage, Tonye Aganaba is a dynamic and sultry performer who is proficient in a number of genres such as Dubstep, Nu-soul and other forms of contemporary funk and R&B.
This award-winning artist has been compared with Lauryn Hill and Ani Difranco, both in terms of artistry and her advocacy for social justice issues. In 2015 her impressive career trajectory was waylaid by an MS diagnosis, and then a bad car crash. During the next two years Aganaba radically reassessed her life and goals, then resumed her career more focused than ever.
These days she’s showcasing a repertoire of compelling new songs that reflect her current, more purposeful journey. With her 4-piece band, hers is powerful music that can heal, connect and make a difference.
