This is Niyonu’s 1st solo album in over 15 years! All original songs with messages absolutely meant for today! Hear multifaceted influences, from Nina to Sade, from Sweet Honey to Sinead (sprinkled with a little bit of Jill & Leontyne!) Polyrhythmic vocals – sometimes neo-soul, sometimes, hip hop. Spirit Fuel shakes the roots; unleashing unacknowledged truth and joyful liberation.
Purchase the Vinyl, CD or Digital Spirit Fuel album now! Check out the NUYONI store which features the music of Niyonu in addition to carefully curated offerings, designed to forge inward paths and hold energetic intentions.
NUYONI Artists share the same dedication: Make fabulous creations that break open the heart allowing us to truly see what is and acknowledge what has been, but mostly they offer their creations to live into love, peace & well-being for all. We have developed a supportive & holistic producing approach that invigorates and inspires creative visions that are calling from the deep!
NUYONI EVENTS invite us to gather to remember our body, mind, and spirit. At these experimental, revivalist performances we strike keys, drums, & strings! We dance. We cast ecstatic visuals. We breathe wind and fire. We invite you to journey on the edge with masterful sound production and light beat connection! We balance a totally interactive experience with sitting back and being ‘innertained’!!
Niyonu is a child of the 60’s.
She is an accomplished, rooted visionary.
Her understanding of music is both technical and spiritual.
She walks and often flies between polarities
This gives her remarkable prowess, dexterity, wisdom, insight, and power.
She is born of the Sagittarius Sun.
She is a leader of many. A mother to 4 sons.
Niyonu is free and healing her wounds.
She is dripping molten gold in-between the spaces of where she has been cracked open.
She is stronger now more than ever.
Niyonu is earthy, fluid, and joyous. She is tender. She is healing.
She is Grandmother.
She is medicine woman.
She is lover. She is daughter. Sister.
Niyonu is rising.
She is rising.
Rising to join the highest table, to make more seats there, more tables.
More justice. More peace.
She is rising.
