Info zu Lucid

Franco-Nigerian singer Asa is back with her 4th album after a 5-year hiatus.. Großartiges neues Urban-Soul-Album der franco-nigerianischen Sängerin - zartschmelzend und poppig mit starken Inhalten.

Als 2007 ihr erstes Album veröffentlicht, folgte ein gewaltiger Erdrutsch: ein Platin verkauftes Album, Hunderte von Konzerten auf der ganzen Welt... Asas Musik erzählt die atemberaubende Geschichte einer Offenbarung, die die klassischen Genres verwischt, ein Sound, der zwischen Europa, Afrika und Amerika steht, zwischen noblem Soul und intuitivem Folk, Pop und sanftem Reggae. Das letzte Album liegt inzwischen 5 Jahre zurück und nach diesem langen Schweigen veröffentlicht Asa nun endlich ihr viertes Album "Lucid". Dessen Ausgangspunkt war eine destruktive Beziehung und so ist "Lucid" in gewisser Weise autobiografisch, es erkundet die ganze Bandbreite leidenschaftlicher Emotionen und handelt von allen Formen der Liebe - dem Schmerz, der Freude, der Nähe und dem Lachen. Es ist geleitet von Instinkt und Spontanität und wer zuhört, fühlt sich angesprochen als würde Asa nur über uns und für uns allein singen. "Lucid" ist filigran und zart, melodisch und stark, vor allem aber schlichtweg schön.

Asa, Gesang




Bukola Elemide aka Asa
Born Bukola Elemide, Asa was born in Paris to Nigerian parents, who took her back to Lagos, Nigeria at an early age where she was raised and attended boarding school. “I have lived most of my life in Lagos,” says Asa. “It is a throbbing city that never seems to cool down. You have to be street smart to survive there.” Asa’s father was a music enthusiast and she was introduced to various music through his record collection. “My father had a large library of vinyl from soul music to funk, Afrobeat, highlife, Apala you name it; we had it all. All these formed the foundation of my songwriting.” At 19, Asa returned to Paris where she was able to artistically explore her roots as both a Parisian and Nigerian. “It was like being a room with its walls splashed in different vibrant colors with no end to it,” she shares. “That was how I viewed the art scene in Paris. Here art is infinite, it’s a lot of freedom I could allow myself to think globally while I remain close to my roots my authentic self.” Lucid is Asa’s most personal and revealing recording yet. “There’s been a lot of growth,” reflects Asa. “You can hear it through the records. I see the world differently now. In the beginning I was a little naïve, wanting to be a savior. Now I am more understanding and patient with the world. This has made me introspective, looking from the inside out; it’s more personal.” The songs were born out of her own personal experiences as well as some of her friends journeys and the lessons they have shared with one another. “I hope the songs are as healing for others as they have been for me,” says Asa.
