I just can’t shut my trap when it comes to Amenta Abioto, whose work is a fluid combination of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and African music. Earlier this month the singer/songwriter released a gorgeous, mystical music video for her single “Plant It,” exploring themes of environmentalism, the connection between humans and nature, and manifesting your dreams. To see her perform live is a real treat—Abioto has been at the top of her game recently, having perfected her soul-stirring vocals, improvised song-construction, and spot-on comedic timing. Come see her play unreleased songs like “Kujichagulia,” “Wade,” and “Revolution,” and then start the countdown until her next show.
