A force to be reckoned with, NGAIO is more than just a singer. This powerhouse of a performer can switch from a killer DJ set to delivering intricate jazz harmonies with a voice that could have stepped out of the 1940s, to heart hitting spoken word.
It’s rare to find a performer with this many strings to their bow. NGAIO’s versatility as an artist has seen her moving audiences to standing ovations in St George’s Hall with a soul striking vocals, spark tears though truth laden lyrics, destroy dancefloors with selections old and new that take crowds on a journey of nostalgia and discovery and sometimes combine all three!
As well as performing, NGAIO founded Booty Bass as a space for women and non binary folk to come together and play big, bad, unapologetic bangers. Since its conception in 2018 it’s become a space that promotes an appreciation of different cultures and sounds from across the world where dancing and laughing is key.
Over the past year NGAIO has performed at Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown and Powerhouse Festivals. As well as in Lille and Reims in France. This year she ran her own venue, Obsidian, with Booty Bass and Shade Cartel. Previously a regular on SWU FM she has also appeared on Kiss FM, BBC 1Xtra, BBC6 Music, BBC Introducing and Trickstar Radio.
