Abimaro & the Free
Abimaro & The Free are an exciting new act, creating music with a young and poetic slant. Taking their inspiration from genres such as folk, they confront issues to do with image and identity, and are set on making their voice heard, commenting on all that surrounds them and showing how life inspires art.
In 2011 Abimaro & The Free received airplay on BBC London, Jazz FM & Flava TV and released their second EP ‘Books’ as a free download. 2012 has seen them sell-out the Albany Theatre, London with their show ‘The House My Sister Drew’, pack out coffee shops across East London in their ‘Ginger Tea Tour’ and release their debut single ‘Ginger Tea’.
Abimaro says, “I wanted to find a way of telling my stories. Suddenly I realised singing made sense. I started singing all the time but it was the fact that I could express issues that I felt so deeply that made the difference.
