East African vocalist and songwriter Somi's latest album "The Lagos Music Salon" (Sony/Okeh) is inspired by her recent 18-month creative sabbatical in Lagos, Nigeria. Now back in New York City, Somi dynamically weaves story-based lyrics with global jazz and soul to reflect on her West African sojourn. The result is a socially-conscious and deeply poetic body of work that The New York Times hails as "both serious and seductive." This show is a part of The Salon Tour - a national run of performances during which Somi partners with intimate community arts spaces to reflect the original salons she hosted while living in Lagos.
