The Music Cafe is designed to attract intergenerational and forward thinking artists and audiences alike. Featuring diverse performances across a myriad of genres (R&B, hip hop, soul, jazz, pop, funk and rock), the monthly series introduces new artists or musical projects to the local music circuit. ABIAH returns to the Apollo with his newest work, ABIAH Sings Nina Simone. This special project explores the Nina Simone catalogue full of secrets and shame, loneliness and tenderness, love and pain. As the fourth full length from the Ghanaian American singer songwriter, ABIAH builds off the warm naturalism of his Billboard Top 100 album BOTTLES and emerges with his most expansive and expressive work so far. While each album marks a departure from the next, ABIAH Sings Nina Simone finds the critically acclaimed artist showing the extraordinary depth of his artistry.
