‘London soul singer slicing feminism and politics into jazz melodies’ – Wonderland Magazine
22-year-old singer Poppy Ajudha grew up in a South-East London nightclub. As daughter of the owner, she came into contact with jazz, roots and rocksteady already at the age of 5. No wonder making music has become a natural reflex.
February saw the release of her EP ‘FEMME’, where she weaves her stance on gender, feminism and race into neo-soul tracks with a clear jazz and r&b influence. Her collaboration with Kojey Radical – ‘Spilling into You’ – is about a love story told from a feminist viewpoint. Then you have ‘Tepid Soul’, which paints a picture of her experiences as a ‘mixed race woman’.
