BNM Red Alert: Layori



We, Nigerian-based folk might be on the late bus on this one. However, good music is timeless and cannot hide. I give you Layori. She is based in Munich, Germany and sings an eclectic mix of Folk, Soul and Jazz.

With the first few bars of the blues-colored, folkloristic title “Dada”, sung in her Yoruba, Layori pulls the listener into a sounduniverse where Afro, Pop, Soul and Jazz can communicate the easy way.

What we hear is an airy, almost completely acoustic, calm music, that is simple, catchy but multilayered – music that is never dominant but always electrifying.

It is sung by a woman that loves transparency as much as mystery, a woman that shows a surprising maturity for her age, a woman that is obviously in balance with herself. With her sensuous alto voice the singer is aiming directly at the hearts and souls of those who listen to her
