This Royal Albert Home session can be watched on demand now:
British singer-songwriter and cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson will deliver an exclusive session from her home as part of the Royal Albert Home series.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
Ayanna is a rare exception to the rule that classical and alternative R&B music cannot successfully coexist and was described by Time Out as someone who “has to be heard to be believed”.
Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, she released three EPs and her debut Album Road Runner in 2019, featuring artists including pianist Robert Mitchell and rapper Akala. It’s a concept album that pays tribute to her Jamaican roots, with an authentic urban grittiness against the backdrop of her incredible musicality.
