Black history month is upon us! Here at the school we love to use this month to shine a light on amazing Black artists around the world!
This year we’ve chosen to to focus on current Black musicians creating extraordinary art.
Introducing Joy Oladokun from Arizona!
Oladokun is a Singer-Songwriter who’s music incorporates elements of folk, R and B and rock. Both her musical and lyrical stylings are influenced by her identity as a Queer Woman of Colour.
She has been making music since 2016, but came into the national spotlight in 2020 with her album In Defence Of My Own Happiness.
She has toured widely and performed on national television numerous times.
Here she is on Colbert with her song Sunday
And here she is with a small set of her songs on NPR’s Tiny Desk!
We absolutely love her tone and the emotion she can deeply convey!
Hit play, enjoy the beauty of her music and thank us later!
