“Aisha Badru’s vocals are slight but soulful, airy but powerful…she uses this distinctive alternative/indie sound to soul-stirring effect that is difficult to describe but impossible not to feel.” — Afropunk
“If you’re looking for a healthy dose of organic, beautifully sung acoustic-folk, look no further than New York-based singer-songwriter Aisha Badru.” — Hillydilly
Yonkers, NY-born singer/songwriter Aisha Badru has joined Nettwerk Music Group’s label roster, and recently released her latest single, “Mind On Fire,” a powerful track about the revolutionary spirit that dwells inside all of us. The equally poignant music video, which just premiered on Afropunk, was directed by Icelandic director Tota Sigurdardottir and shot documentary style, featuring real women as they fight for their passion in the midst of daily obligations and obstacles.

Since its release, “Mind On Fire” has racked up almost 4 million streams on Spotify and been featured across some major playlists, including Indie Acoustic and Feminist Friday. The track also got a remix from prolific storyteller and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cooper, aka Radical Face, whom Aisha will support on the road starting October 10th in Phoenix, AZ. All tour dates are below.
Aisha Badru uses airy vocals and vivid lyrics to draw listeners into her soulfully emotive world. Until somewhat recently, Aisha preferred the confines of her own bedroom for writing and recording music, but her deep desire to connect with people through her music eventually pushed her to share songs online. A few fans turned into a few thousand fans and blogs started to take notice. She self-released her debut EP Vacancy in 2015, and soon caught attention of the ad world when her beautifully moving song “Waiting Around” was selected for a Volkswagen viral campaign.
Aisha is currently putting the finishing touches on her debut full-length album, due out early 2018 (tba).
