Poppy Ajudha - EP Creation, Release and Launch Show

Poppy Ajudha is the voice at the forefront of the burgeoning South London music scene. Growing up in Depftord, she was exposed to soul, jazz, funk and reggae from an early age at the nightclub her father owned. It’s her modern twist on these influences combined with her unique lyrics which passionately address gender, feminism and gentrification as well as love and the sense of growing up that have garnered her early support for her first release Love Falls Down including Gilles Peterson, Huw Stephens, BBC Introducing and Jamz Supernova with her voice being likened to that of Erkyah Badu, Corinne Bailey-Rae and Amy Winehouse.

Poppy has chosen to work with some of South London’s most exciting musicians and producers to create her forthcoming EP and will be working with them over the course of a month to create a work that will aim to push boundaries through both composition and lyrical content while encapsulating the unique sound of the musicians she has grown up with. To celebrate it’s launch, she will be curating an incredibly special night of music and art to launch the EP and will be inviting some of her favorite up and coming artists from all disciplines to perform culminating in a headline performance from Poppy herself. This is not one to be missed!

It may be early days for Poppy but rest assured she will be the name on everyone’s lips and the soundtrack to a young, socially engaged generation in the very near future.
