In the run up to her shows at The Jazz Cafe and upcoming single ‘Have Mercy’ Amahla sat down with London In Stereo to discuss five songs that have influenced her musical development.
Since releasing her debut EP Consider This in February, Amahla’s pertinent songwriting has rightfully been gathering great acclaim. With her distinct blend of velvety-rich vocals, lilting melodies, and pared-down R&B rhythms, Amahla astutely addresses current issues of class, race, and violence within the capital. Her lyrics offer insightful, vital reflections on the present, uncertain cultural and socio-political clime, intertwined with personal narratives and memories delivered via Amahla’s powerful voice.London In Stereo
