Ayo (Interscope/Universal Records) is already a star in Europe with half a million records sold in only five countries. Audiences from France to Australia have fallen in love with her special blend of Soul, Folk, Reggae and Afro-Beats.

AYO is a German born artist, the offspring of a Nigerian father who had come to Germany to study in the 1970s, and sometimes worked as a DJ, and a mother who is a gypsy. AYOs rather unusual name means joy in Yoruba. Her rich cultural background is also reflected in her musical influences. She grew up amidst Pink Floyd and Fela Kuti, the Soul Children and Bob Marley, and many others.

AYOs nomadic lifestyle brought her to live between Paris and New York, two capitals that accurately sum up her musical identity. In Paris, word got around fast, and she held initial solo concerts with her guitar, opened for James Brown, as well as Omar, the British soul brother, and jammed alongside Cody Chesnutt.
