Monday 1 November 2021

Ama Serwah Genfi, known professionally as Amaarae, is a Ghanaian-American singer, songwriter, producer, and engineer known for her work around representation and gender in music.

After collaborating with artists like AYLØ, Kay-Ara, Yaw P and putting out a few non-album singles, she released her debut 6 track EP, Passionfruit Summers in 2017. The album features the standout song, “Fluid”, which was complemented by a critically acclaimed music video. Amaarae has since added Stonebwoy, Kojey Radical, M3NSA, Santi, Odunsi, B4bonah and very recently, in 2019, the Nigerian Singer-songwriter Wande Coal to the list of artists she has worked with.

“A pacesetter at a time when industry bigwigs are waking up to the long-held truth that Africa is setting the global tempo for pop music” – Pitchfork, Best New Music (8.4)

“As potent and effervescent as a cloud of icing sugar” – The Guardian

“Mellifluous Afrofusion, typified by sugary vocals and lyrical dexterity”- The Line of Best Fit

“Her sweet, silky ambitiously punk body of work offers an insight into the future of African music that anchors the continent as it touches every corner and every influence of the world.” – Gal-dem

“Amaarae is the outsider going global” – CLASH
