Beginning her musical career as a teenage drummer in an all female, thrash Punk band, her taste for heavy emotive music has evolved into a love for deep bass, intricate rhythms and euphoric vibes.
Adjua’s soulful melodies, euphonic raps, and poetic lyrics are influenced by the likes of Erykah Badu, Nitin Sawnhey, Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill and Nai Palm (Hiatus Coyote); along with the natural and spiritual world, social and political struggles and celebrations of life.
Revered for her energy fuelled live performances as front woman for Dub Reggae fusion band Zuri Aura and more recently Backbeat Soundsystem on New York label Easy Star Records, the fire in Adjua’s belly leaves the audience entranced.
Throughout her endeavours she has been hitting up festivals hard including Boomtown Fair, One Love, Secret Garden Party and Eden as well as opening up for the likes of The Wailers, The Skints, Young Blood Brass Band, and Quantic Live amongst others.
Adjua has an eclectic back catalog of works collaborating with producers in genres from Reggae, Jungle, Hiphop and House with tracks over recent years broadcasted on shows including BBC Introducing and Radio 1 Prague.
Adjua’s musical journey has been just as vibrant throughout 2018 launching her latest digital dub project ESKIMO NEBULA with co-producer Dean Forrest alongside producing and DJ’ing her own unique style of forward thinking electronic dance music.
