Released on Saffron Records in 2019, We Fly is the embodiment of Ngaio’s musical, political and spiritual influences. A versatile artist, known for her bass-heavy DJ sets to her powerhouse vocal range, she delivers an EP oozing with intricate jazz harmonies, African percussion and truth-laden spoken word. Ngaio confronts the politics of black bodies, whilst poetically unravelling her mixed-race identity, in a five-track EP housing a lifetime of lived experiences.
Self-titled, this record as a debut from NGAIO is clearly the first step on a musical journey. With lyrics that could have come from a diary entry, the artist melds harmonies with stories in a complex web of feelings that come with relationships and loss.
