Lánre: Má Gbàgbé

Lánre has spent the past couple of years playing her songs in cafés, bars and various charity events all over London. Growing up in Nigeria meant music was a hobby to Lánre. Passing her Maths, English and Sciences with flying colors became priority. Lánre picked up my love for writing and music again in year 2002 when she joined the award winning UK collective GK REAL and that musical journey took me around the world singing and performing with amazing singers, writers and producers.

One of the eleven UK singers and songwriters selected to be part of the Prezzo live tour; performing at various UK restaurants of the Italian chain. Her music can be best described as acoustic soul with influences from her Nigerian heritage of storytelling and folk music along with her background in gospel music. Lánre has taken her Singing for Change acoustic tour to various venues and events like the Greenbelt Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Bath Music Festival, Brighton Fringe, Toronto Canada and Paris.

Her debut solo album Pen Voyage Chapter One: Singing for Change was officially released this autumn. The single Má Gbàgbé was selected to be on the Lufthansa Airline’s playlist “Sounds ofAfrica.” The track was also included in the BBC Introducing playlist on BBC 6
