POPPY AJUDHA’S TAKE ON MODERN JAZZ WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY.
Keeping jazz refreshing with dreamy songs packed with emotion, South London’s Poppy Ajudha is one of many artists bearing the flag for the jazz scene in the UK.
Last summer, Ajudha followed up the enchanting “David’s Song”, an exploration of love and loss dedicated to saxophonist David Turay with the equally arresting “Peace of Mind”. Whilst both songs are well over five minutes long, Ajudha captures your attention and holds it there as the sombre instrumentation peppered with lush piano and guitar melodies swell and sway.
Binding everything together, is of course that magnificent honey-toned vocal, traipsing with ease across those lush soundscapes. There’s a depth beyond her younger years, an emotive tug that draws you in with each and every line, word, syllable.
Lose yourself to the singer’s enthralling performance of her brand new single “Love Falls Down” above, where the Londoner transports you to a world of bliss.
