Paris, France-born, NY-based singer/songwriter Adi Oasis is a multifaceted musician whose other skills include the bass and smooth choreography to boot. She bursts through the doors in 2020 with the captivating duet with Kamauu, “Mango”, which was produced by her own outfit Nightshade with partner Morgan Wiley. She has gone on to perform at numerous events and festivals such as Central Park Summerstage, and Afropunk to name a few and done fashion campaigns for more than a handful of brands.
Her latest release “Red To Violet” is a brilliant sultry collaboration with R&B poet/musician Jamila Woods, the long-time collaborator of Chance The Rapper, Mykki Blanco et al. The Nightshade-produced record is a blend of retro funk, neo-soul and a dash of classic R&B twisted in the singer’s own unique manner. The singers deliver a sultry and soul-lifting performance ripe with vivid songwriting that dwells on the need for empowerment in the minority community regardless of their background, identity or creed. The record is a staunch declaration of ownership and the chance to live up to one’s potential without barriers. The record also pays tributes to women like Kentanji Brown Jackson, Stacey Abrams, AOC and all the other people out there who are taking charge and making change.
Director Simone Holland‘s visuals really stand out with the use of performance shots, retro-styled aesthetics and effects that accentuate Adi and Jamila’s femininity while exuding their strengths as women who are taking the lead in changing the world, one step at a time.
