From her first album, Asa, a Cobhams Asuquo produced body of work which achieved critical acclaim in 2007, to ‘Bed Of Stones’, her 2015 album and several international tours in between, the singer’s songs evoke a myriad of emotions, from sombre meditation as experienced in ‘Bibanke’ to holy rage with ‘Satan Be Gone’.
