Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Aimua Eghobamien

As you explore Aimua Eghobamien's personal background his musical style begins to fall in place. With a dad who listened to a world of music from British Pop to Highlife and Calypso; a mum who sang him Ẹdo lullabies; and siblings who were interested in all things American (Motown, Soul, US Pop and R&B charts) his musical tastes developed without limitations. London-born, he has lived at various points on three continents and experienced at firsthand Nigerian drums and folk, European Pop and American R&B. His own performance experience includes Theatre, Gospel, Rock, Pop, Contemporary Christian, R&B, Soul and the Blues. That all these find a home in his jazz repertoire is a testament to jazz’s open arms and Eghobamien’s passion in embracing diverse influences.

“Jazz vocals with absolute gentleness. ...He is a true, thoroughly exciting, original.” JazzTimes

“There's something magical about his voice.” BBC Radio Ulster

“Stunning CD, ...great work, 'you just don't jazz, you rock!'” Rádio Europa Lisboa
