“Afrodisiac” is the highly anticipated debut album by British born, London based soul singer and producer Teni. A timelessly soulful, sensual jazz and afrobeat inspired piece with sultry vocals, dirty bass lines and hypnotic afro guitars. With a myriad of musical influences from Marvin Gaye and Fela Kuti to Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley and Kate Bush, Teni is the only woman composing original contemporary feminine afrobeat and afrosoul as Fela’s legacy ignites the world from New York to London.

With her eight-piece band, Teni seeks to start a new movement as one of the very few African women leading her own band and touring the world. Her message of African unity and upliftment and powerfully sensual live performance are sure to help her take the music world by storm.
