First concert to present her new album in Spain

Joy Olasunmibo Ogunmakin, better known as Ayo (‘happiness’ in yoruba) was discovered by the world in 2006 because of ‘Down on my knees’, a success included in Joyful, her first studio album that was a huge success (double Platinum in France, for example) and who fascinated all those who had the chance to hear her on occasion of her world tour. And now, in Royal (2020), Ayo exposes that sweet and magnetic voice, together with her blend of wisdom, sensuality and spontaneity, which elevated her instantaneously to the Olympus of the world’s best vocalist.
The German-Nigerian singer, pianist, guitarist and composer, whose musical education was based on the sounds of Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, Bunny Walter and King Sunny Adé –the father of the Nigerian jùjú–, passes this heritage on to her songs, that sound like reggae, folk, soul, jazz… and that are pure positive energy in her concerts.
