Artist Information

Andayoma

Andayoma relocated to Singapore in 2001 and began her career as a singer while nurturing her growing passion for songwriting and music composition as she settled into her new life. She sees music as the perfect medium to express her thoughts on life’s contradictions as well as the complexities of human relationships. Her stage name “Andayoma” is a portmanteau of her daughters’ first names.

 

Andayoma nurtures a growing passion for music song writing and composition. Her new life in Asia is the opportunity to step back and observe her contemporaries. More than ever, she acknowledges that jazz is the perfect medium to translate her vision of human contradictions. In May 2010, she released her first album Palette of colours, and toured the album in Canada and Guyana in the following year.

 

In March 2014, Andayoma released her second album Shades of Love. It offers a collection of her singular Jazzattitude, rendering a mix of jazzy melodies celebrated in Creole and Caribbean rhythms pulsed in English.
