Introducing Adama, the Delicate Dragon

Adama took time off last weekend to talk to NVS (Soul Sista and big K)about growing up, her recollection of Nigeria, Kung Fu, Belly dancing and more. We also include snippets of her music. Enjoy! {enclose 16532793 audio/mpeg}

Often compared to Sade and Dido with Depeche Mode thrown into the mix, UK singer-songwriter Adama is a unique artist in her own right.alt

Adama's most precious form of songwriting comes from her dreams. A dynamic and prolific writer, she 'receives' everything from melodies to string arrangements during her sleep-state. In the studio, the team have worked together on translating these dreams into solid tracks for all to experience. The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees and super-group Mad Season amongst other quality musicians from around the world, are featured on Adama's songs.

Spiritually engaging and thought provoking, Adama's songs are pure and powerful with addictive melodies that stick in your mind after just one listen. Add to that the cutting-edge electronic-pop production, fine musicianship, Adama's pop-star looks and a strong album completed... Adama is ready to make her mark.

Today, Adama's music is making waves on major internet music sites, such as MySpace. She is attracting fans from all over the globe through college and internet radio and is ready to take the next step forward.

Half Nigerian, half Cornish, Adama grew up in a diverse world of musical influences. You can hear her background in the style of her vocals: rhythmical and innovative. As an artist, she is a fresh and clean break from the norm, yet with a familiarity that magnetises her audience, leaving listeners captivated and wanting more.

This new Nigerian sensation is set to conque
r the US pop scene. Adama is due to release her debut album, ÔÇśDelicate Dragon' later on this year in the USA. For those of you who have not yet heard of her, she is beautiful, talented, spiritual and humble and will make any Nigerian proud.
The Album: ÔÇśDelicate Dragon'
Adama's album is assorted of many different flavors. ÔÇśDelicate Dragon' opens with her song ÔÇśThe Moment' that borrowed with Sade's permission the bass line of ÔÇśParadise'. Many of her fans are comparing between the two but you should listen for yourself to make up your own mind.
Adama teamed up with British producer, Gili Wiseburgh (Lamb, SugarBabes, Frou Frou), and headed out to the Dead Sea to produce a multi flavored Pop album. All the songs were written by Adama and are sourced from her experiences growing up in London, raised by her single Nigerian mother.
We recommend you go visit Adama's myspace page at and learn many more things about her like how she does belly dancing or about how she used to be the UK kung-Fu champion, representing the UK in Hong Kong. You got it folks! A star in the making that Nigerians will be very proud of.

*Adama's debut album 'DELICATE DRAGON' is due for release October 2007*
