Extraordinary London-born artist ALA.NI, learnt her trade singing with Mary J Blige, Damon Albarn and Andrea Bocelli, amongst others. She announces her debut EP ‘You & I Spring’ (out March 23rd through ParadYse) and shares this self-directed video for the lead track ‘Cherry Blossom’. An alluring, moving and magical first offering.
In ALA.NI’s words…
“My love for you was sprung in Spring
And flourished in the Summer sun
Autumn killed the fresh green leaves
By Winter all was said and done”ALA.NI also announces a special month-long live residency at East London’s best-kept secret Manero’s.
