Amaarae is a multi-talented musician and English Lit major hailing from Accra, Ghana.

Now a growing force within the Ghanaian music scene and starting to make waves across the seas, Amaarae’s unique sound, which combines an experimental mix of Neo-soul and African drums, is getting her the attention from the likes of Gilles Peterson.
