The thing about this West London-born singer is that she is totally unique!
ALA.NI’s musical journey started with "Mary J. Blige" and "Blur" as backing vocals.
Encouraged by Damon Albarn, she jumps very quickly into her solo carrer and release her first album: « You and I » in January 2016. Since then, she's the European Medias "coqueluche" and performs and most prestigious stages: La Philarmonie in Paris or Montreux Jazz Festival this summer!
You could compare Ala.Ni to a contemporary Billie Holliday; argue that her vocals are as searing as Minnie Riperton; that she dresses like a cross between Lauren Hill and Jane Birkin, but to say so would be a disservice because the thing about this West London-born singer is that she is totally unique. If she had to describe her music (something she doesn't find easy), she'd call it "dark Disney ».
