What does it mean for music to be global? It could describe influences from many continents fused together. Sometimes when artists try to achieve this, the roots of each sound get muddied to the point of indecipherability. However, when it comes to Toronto-based, Nigerian-born crooner Nonso Amadi, his uniquely cross-continental style of Afro R&B is an organic result of all the sonic components he’s found during his life’s migration.
In school, he learned to play traditional Yoruba songs on the flute. Meanwhile, the politically conscious Afrobeat and jújú music from Fela Kuti, Onyeka Onwenu, and King Sunny Ade floated in his periphery. Their backing tempos became ingrained in his musical psyche. As the artist prepares to release his first full length album after nearly a decade in the game, these roots create the connective tissue to the project. Leaning on that sonic pillar, as Amadi has grown and changed locations, he’s been able to add organic musical elements to his core structure.
