Cleverly penned lyrics drawing on themes of colonialism and feminism set to melodies reminiscent of classic jazz and soul…

Poppy Ajudha is a 22-year-old musician from South London. Poppy’s vocal tone and melodies, reminiscent of classic jazz and soul, combine with her lyric-writing ability to place her at the forefront of the South London music scene. Poppy grew up with a diverse set of influences, with a Saint Lucian born father who played her Motown and Roots Reggae and British mother who in turn exposed her to funk, rare groove and soul.

Through her mother, Poppy was introduced to feminism – independence and strength was felt through the way she bought Poppy and her sisters up. Alongside her love for music, Poppy holds interest in colonialism and its effects in the postcolonial era, gender and the shaping of current social issues as a product of historical perspectives. She has collaborated with a host of exciting artists and tastemakers such as Tom Misch, Kojey Radical, Gilles Peterson and more. Over the course of 2018 she’s been tipped as ‘one to watch’ by the likes of Jamz Supernova, Wonderland, Line Of Best Fit and Notion Magazine. She has toured the UK and Europe in support of Tom Misch and Jamila Woods, sold out a headline show at Omeara, previously been supported by PRS as part of their ‘Women Make Music’ and ‘Keychange’ campaigns which supports the development of outstanding female creatives and innovators from across Europe.
