The icing on the cake - Bumi Thomas to perform at TEDxEuston Salon 2014!

Bumi Thomas is a dynamic contemporary African, acoustic Jazz-folk-soul singer and songwriter whose style is inspired by her multicultural heritage. Her music explores identity, sensuality, Love, spirituality, retrospective and cross-culturism. Born in Glasgow, raised between Kano and Lagos, and now based in London after completing a degree in Fine Art Media & Visual Communication, Bumi's music represents the journey of a modern African creative in the Diaspora.

"My journey is essentially about transcending boundaries. Its ethos: a delicate exploration of the relationship between art and experience, how that expression is transformed to music and how that music translates to pure emotional impulse. As an artist, I find that my work also encapsulates my evolution as a woman."
Bumi's sound is a contemporary fusion that combines jazz, folklore, high life, Afro-beat rhythms, reggae grooves and tribal nuances. A truly organic fusion of ornate rhythms, thought stimulating lyrics, ambient melodies infused with funk and delivered with soul. A sound- scape rich in texture, imagination, originality and poetry inflected by the influence of Tracy Chapman, Sade Adu, Bobby McFerrin, Nina Simone and Miriam Makeba. Bumi  is the 2011 recipient of  the Womatt Best of British (BOB) Award for Best Solo Newcomer and was also nominated for two BEFFTA awards "Best Female Act" and "Best Female UK Based Afro-Caribbean Act".
