TONIGHT on Venus Radio, A K U A


Tune in today to CKUT from 12-2pm for Venus to hear an interview with Ghanan/Canadian synth-soul songstress A K U A !

Born to an immigrant father from Ghana and a Canadian mother, Akua Carson was raised in a relatively uneventful suburb of London, Ontario. As a biracial child in a culturally homogenous community, Akua’s childhood would bear a certain uneasiness surrounding identity and categorization; a theme that has persisted its way into her music and undoubtedly influenced the diversity and ambiguity one hears in her sound today.

She’ll be playing a show presented by the Howl Arts Collective tonight at La Sala Rossa alongside Detroit MC Invincible. Definitely don’t miss it if you’re into good vibes, soul or hip hop.
