NANA ADJOA Announces Debut Album ‘Big Dreaming Ants’ + Shares “No Room”

Singer-songwriter Nana Adjoa is a sonic explorer, armed with a deft poeticism and a fierce sense of musicianship. But behind her bold approach to songwriting is an unflinching sense of curiosity and an openness to endless possibility. All of this is demonstrated on Adjoa’s debut full-length, Big Dreaming Ants which will be released September 24th. On her debut album we see the Amsterdam-based multi-instrumentalist find herself contemplating such profound themes as identity, love, and our modern global society. The album is available for pre-order here.

Released today is the gorgeous new single and video for the powerful song “No Room”. The video is a nod to her Ghanian heritage and was premiered on Complex UK.

Creative Director Rudy Asibey says, “The vision was to bring Nana’s duality in culture and music together. Her name stands for so much more in Ghanaian culture. Nana means king/queen and Adjoa is her day name (Monday) which stands for peacemaker. For me, Nana’s music is a journey to finding the answers to life. Nana guides us with music to help us find those answers. I wanted to bring that journey to life in the visuals. In this video we see more of her Ghanaian culture and a journey to finding self— even though people want to put you in a box or want you to become someone else. In the end, she chooses herself. As Nana’s name represents, I hope her music guides people to choose for themselves, to learn more about their heritage in order to gain learnings from heritage and grow. Especially in these times, it is important to know where you’re from, in order to know where you’re going. We could all use a peacemaker.”
