With a spoken voice as smooth as velvet, German-born soul singer Ayo excitedly told the Times her upcoming gig finally feels like the 'real thing.'

The 28-year-old, who along with her band, is headlining for one of the first times in London has already caused waves.

She is here to tour with her second album Gravity At Last, which was released last month as a follow-up to her first offering Joyful, which sold almost a million copies worldwide.

Ayo said: "I'm very excited. I always love to share music with people and see their responses. My music attracts people who like spending time with other people. It's a melting pot of reggae, blues, and soul."

With a mixed Nigerian and Eastern European gypsy heritage, Ayo grew up with a unique fusion of musical influences.

She will play on Monday at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, in Carlton House Terrace, Piccadilly Circus.

Tickets cost £14 plus a £1 booking fee.
