London-born singer-songwriter, Teni, is out with her sultry debut album, Afrodisiac, which is an evocative fusion of smooth jazz, reggae, and afrobeats.   This well-developed album is packed full with steamy hits, powerful beats and soulful lyrics!  If you’re a fan of Sade, Nina Simone, Billie Holliday and other similar artists, Afrodisiac is must-buy and is currently available on iTunes and Amazon!

Teni is a jazz singer and composer who makes Afrosoul music. She was born in London and spent her early years in Lagos, Nigeria before returning to England to attend University College London and School of Oriental and African Studies.
Inspired by Fela Kuti, Marvin Gaye, Sade Adu, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, blues, funk and jazz, she returned home to Africa where she creates a truly, unique, rootsy and bold sound and leads the AFro Renaissance.  Ten years in the making, she now presents her debut album, Afrodisiac.  Her message of unity and upliftment and powerfully sensual live performance are sure to help her take the music world by storm.
