PRESENTED BY MATT FIELD
Feeling. Expression. Women. Sexuality. These are the themes that run through ALPHAMAMA's art and music.
Her sound is a potent mix of Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, Gospel, Traditional Indonesian and World music. She is a formidable performer known for her raw and evocative performances. Her live shows combine exquisite musicality, poetic storytelling and audience interaction. Juxtaposed with hard-hitting rap verses, booty shaking and occasional oracle card readings.
Her versatility has made her an asset to the industry. She has worked with peers and icons such as Salt N Pepa, Thundamentals & Tuka, Jean Grae, Dead Prez, L-Fresh The Lion, Watussi, Electric Empire, NGAIIRE, Jessica Mauboy, Reece Mastin, True Vibenation and Set Mo.
Her debut EP released through Creative Vibes was described by press as ‘Feminist Funk’. Holding down a Friday night residency at The Macquarie Hotel brought some notoriety with her all female band, The Love Drug. This residency epitomised the energy of the Sydney music scene at the time. She then released her album in 2012 to a capacity room at Oxford Arts Factory.
Her latest record, Oil & Water is rapidly gaining traction with over 150k Spotify streams within 2 months of it’s release.
"She’s hip, she’s strong, she’s got one hell of a voice. ALPHAMAMA prizes creative expression over digestibility and injects much-needed passion into music." - Antigone Anagnostellis (Purple Sneakers)
