Aimua Eghobamien

Aimua Eghobamien is a British singer-songwriter and poet based in New York City.

This post-beat urban contemporary jazz artist releases his second album on his own label, Quaesitor Music, in September 2014. Recorded live in London at Kings Place and Pizza Express Jazz Club, London Live captures Eghobamien’s Black Sessions project created and performed by him with a group of brilliantly talented UK musicians
