Afrika Piano Vocalist

Afrika Fuentes

When Afrika arrived on the soul pop scene with the acclaimed Rainbow in August 2012, she began selling out gigs upon release, creating a storm with her creative and original music video.

Having already won the BBC New Talent Award for New Songwriters and written for Cathy Dennis, responsible for number 1 records from Britney Spears, Kylie and Katy Perry, Sony ATV quickly signed her up and she is now writing for platinum selling artists worldwide.

Afrika grew up in Madrid, listening to Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and Michael Jackson, influencing and turning her music into a creative blend of Pop, R&B, Soul, Latin and occasionally even flirting with Flamenco, Electro and Gospel.

Afrika can sing and play a real mixture of Spanish and Latin songs to suit theme nights and salsa parties!

She is an amazing live performer, with quality vocals and songs to suit almost every audience, performing her own unique twist on songs from 60s to present day hits.

Afrika is ideal for wedding breakfast and reception entertainment, wine bars, corporate entertainment, private parties, restaurants and easy listening lid back performances.

‘Afrika is an up-and-coming talent with a privileged voice, comparable to Alicia Keys or Nelly Furtado.
Gill Mills (Music Journalist, NME)’
