Somi: The Lagos Music Salon

The Lagos Music Salon is Somi’s debut on Sony’s OKeh Records and comes after the East African vocalist and songwriter moved from New York to Lagos, Nigeria. Somi, who grew up in Africa and America, drew on the tropical city’s boastful, cosmopolitan, giant spirit to write songs that connect her heart, head and heritage. She weaves a wide range of pop, soul and jazz threads into her music, which reflect her experience as a woman, artist and global citizen.
