African Queens Show – Women and Arts: Chi Temu

September 7, 2014

This Morning on the African Queens Show we are looking at women in the creative arts industry and in the studio with us we have the very talented African soul sister Miss Chi Temu!

Chi Temu

Chi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born in Senegal, Internationally grown, hailing from Tanzania and residing in Liverpool; Chi is a nomadic music traveller who has roots in the Soul, R&B, and old school Blues and Rock with the lyrical styling of a Neo-Soul revolutionary.

From the young age of 3 with her face glued to an MTV brimming with a plethora of talent,Chi could sense that music said what we could not and made us feel like nothing before or after it. As soon as she felt she’d learnt the basics to teach herself piano she began writing at 13. Urged on and wanting to expand her musical horizons she picked up a guitar, looking for new sounds and emotions, and has never looked back.

Currently collaborating and constantly evolving, nothing makes her happier than the energy and intimacy of a live performance swiftly followed by a dance party :). Find her on your nearest street corner busking, and bar bashing out husky power vocals or just wait till she opens her mouth, a song is bound to come out.
