Jam of the Week: Akua Allrich – Fire

Rich Medina artwork (1500x840)Akua Allrich has a noticeable warmth about her. And not just because she’s singing about ‘Fire’.

This DC-born jazz and soul singer has the energy of Eno Williams (Ibibio Sound Machine) and Niara Scarlett. On this Afrobeat track – taken from DJ and producer Rich Medina’s latest compilation, honouring the legacy of Fela Kuti, Jump n Funk – Allrich swells with the untamed energy of a singer on a natural high.

Fire appears on the compilation Rich Medina Presents Jump n Funk, out now on BBE Records.
