I first discovered the brilliance of Somi when were young kids doing musicals and plays. She has developed into one of the world’s leading World Music recording artists and a bona fide star. Somi sells out from stadiums to intimate venues across the world with her unique blend of jazz, African and soul. Now, you can catch her in an intimate set of shows at the world famous Joe’s Pub.
“This will be my very first after-hours run of shows. I decided to do the NightSPRING residency because we’ve all longed for Spring to unfold and we all love the magic of the night.” – says Somi.
The acclaimed East African vocalist & songwriter Somi returns to Joe’s Pub for a three week late-night residency. She and her band will preview music from her forthcoming album and major label debut “The Lagos Music Salon” (Sony/Okeh) which will be released this Summer. Her NightSPRING residency is inspired by the unfolding season and the magic of the night.
