Somi: The Salon Tour
The Red Poppy Art House is very excited to announce a special two-night, four show engagement with critically-acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Somi.  These two evenings of music are part of  the artist's Salon Tour, promoting the release of her lastest album, The Lagos Music Salon.

Praised for both her musical and scholarly achievements, Somi has made a powerful impression on audiences internationally.  Musically, she draws inspiration from many lands, but her connection to Africa is at the heart of her creative expression.  She weaves together velvety, African-tinged jazz textures, soul-driven vocal styling, and compassionate, socially conscious lyrics.  Somi has been compared to her venerable vocal "fore-mothers" Miriam Makeba and Nina Simone, both of whom strived for a music-making tradition of entertaining listeners and mobilizing the collective social conscience. Her work honors the tradition of African narratives told through song, and attempts to shed light on the modern African experience by telling the stories of individuals she encounters as well as her own experience of being an African woman. In addition to singing and writing songs, Somi is a TED Fellow, an inaugural Association of Performing Arts Presenters Fellow, a 2013 Park Avenue Armory Artist-in-Residence, and the founder of New Africa Live, a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating   contemporary African artists working in the performance, visual, and literary arts.
