​Having begun writing and performing rhymes as a young girl, the New Haven, CT (USA) born Akua Naru, began crafting in her early years what would later reveal to be a great talent for profound lyricism and extraordinary musical performances. Known as a traveler, as chronicled throughout her Jan. 2011 debut release, The Journey Aflame, this female wordsmith has garnered attention by trotting the globe, recording her experiences and fusing musical genres with her brand of hip hop. Formerly based in Philadelphia, there have been many stops along the way, from traveling West Africa to touring China, Naru moved to Cologne, Germany where she currently resides and creates music. <AkuaNaru.com>
