Born in France in 1972 to French and West African parents, the Award-winning Mina Agossi is making a long overdue return to the Club. Mina first came to attention in 1995 when she co-produced an album of original tunes entitled “Voice & Bass”, using no wind, brass or keyboard instruments. That album won the “Young Self-Produced Talents” Award, giving her the chance to develop her skills through studies in the US and France. After moving to Paris she produced a series of highly acclaimed albums, establishing herself both in Europe and the US and working with the likes of iconic US saxophonist Archie Shepp. In 2001 Mina’s first live album, recorded in Brooklyn, eponymously titled “E-Z Pass to Brooklyn” incorporated elements of hip hop, world music, blues and rock, and in 2005 she won ‘Best Newcomer’ at The Adami Awards that led to her appearing at numerous festivals and Clubs around the world. Tonight marks the UK launch of Mina’s latest album "UrbAfrika", a return to the music of Benin, the land of her father. Fusing traditions from Europe, the Caribbean and of course Africa, this latest album explores the rhythms and instruments of Africa in the context of Mina's Jazz and Contemporary-influenced singing and writing.
