Singer songwriter Ayo’s new album is worth a listen. 

Her music blends folk and soul. She sings in an impassioned whisper, angry at the world’s unfairness. 

Ayo was born in Germany to a Roma mother from Romania and a Yoruba father from Nigeria.

Her passion can at times lack focus, but when she engages it is very powerful.

Complain attacks safe wealthy people who “talk, talk, talk, but have nothing to say,” as the world comes apart around them.
