Press Text
TOKUNBO is the darling of the Folk Noir scene, with three solo albums and a musiography spanning five German Jazz Awards, multiple radio and TV interviews and a host of international tours.  At the end of 2019 TOKUNBO teamed up with NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra for the collaboration concert TOKUNBO and her Great American Songbook.

She also recently scooped two new prestigious awards: Winner Best Female Artist International Acoustic Music Awards 2020 and Silver Medal Winner Global Music Awards 2021.

TOKUNBO has been appointed to the 2022 jury for German Jazz Prize as well as Eurovision Song Contest.

TOKUNBO released her much-acclaimed, solo-debut album Queendom Come in 2014. Queendom Come was described by Jazzthetik Magazine as ‚a wonderful album brim-full with catchy songs, sung by a stunningly beautiful voice’.

Her sophomore album The Swan gained a grant from German government’s Initiative Musik Foundation and has
received significant media and critical attention, particularly from the quality music press. ‚…one of the most masterfully produced albums from Germany. Wonderfully sung and played.‘ (Focus Online). 

TOKUNBO’s work has been particularly well received by the high-fidelity community The Swan becoming a demo album of choice within the HiFi industry. The vinyl edition of The Swan sold out several times within a few months. Her new album ‘Golden Days’, is already being hailed as instant classic by the press.

Previously, TOKUNBO was the voice of Tok Tok Tok, with global tours and high-profile concerts with the NDR Pops Orchestra and the Babelsberg Filmorchestra as credits. Thanks to several TV guest appearances, amongst them the prestigious talk show‚ WDR Zimmer Frei and ARTE One Shot Not – Tok Tok Tok shot from newcomer to household name in record time.

TOKUNBO has also performed alongside and supported an array of industry stars, from Gregory Porter to Dee Dee Bridgewater. In 2020, the year of the pandemic, TOKUNBO co-founded #AirplayForArtists, an initiative paving the way for independent musicians onto National Radio.
