Yaya Bey (cancelled)

The personal and the political are two sides of the same coin for Yaya Bey. That’s why the American singer’s neo-soul is as much about her childhood, struggles and failed relationships as it is about revolution, feminism and the Black freedom struggle. 

After two well-received albums, last year saw the release of her EP The Things I Can’t Take With Me, her first release on the Big Dada label (Kae Tempest, Sampa The Great, among others). The Guardian reviewed Yaya Bey’s EP as ‘a smooth soul record boasting a conversational delivery reminiscent of Jill Scott and Noname.’
