About Aimua Eghobamien
“A very sophisticated singer with a strong voice.” —Jazzwise Magazine
Aimua Eghobamien is a British singer-songwriter and poet based in New York City. London-born to parents of the Edo ethnic group in southwestern Nigeria, and a family that appreciated music, he grew up listening to everything: R&B/soul, pop, rock, gospel, country, blues, jazz, classical, highlife, Afrobeat, juju and Edo folk music.
This post-beat urban contemporary jazz artist released his second album on his own label, Quaesitor Music, in 2014. Recorded live in London at Kings Place and Pizza Express Jazz Club, “London Live” captures Eghobamien’s Black Sessions project created and performed by him with a group of brilliantly talented UK musicians. He released his debut album, “Poured Gently”, in 2010 to rave reviews.
He is currently working on an all-original project. He is writing and rehearsing in New York City with drummer Scott Neumann and bassist Ben Zwerin.
