Hypnotic…sultry…vulnerable…empowering. These words come to mind when first experiencing the music of Jojo Abot, the Ghanaian singer-songwriter who is poised to capture the ears of discerning listeners worldwide with her experimental blend of electronica, afrobeat, jazz, neo-soul, house and reggae.
For her first and forthcoming EP Fyfya Woto, Jojo found sonic inspiration in the music of Thandiswa Mazwai, Savage Rose, Seeed, Lucky Dube, and Simphiwe Dana. However, the raw emotion at the heart of the four-track project which centers around a woman’s right to choose comes from the generational ties that bind the women in her family together.
With songs based around a woman’s right to choose, the conceptual project marks Abot first body of work as a musical artist.
