Contagious afro sound and melodic vocals with mantric ethno breaks are putting Aklea Neon in the spotlight as on of the brightest aspiring artist of the year in Croatia. This fairy of rhyme and beat has only five singles and already two music awards: Ambasador Live act of the year 2020. and Zlatko Turkalj’s SIngersongwriter of the year.
What sets Aklea apart from the singer-songwriter crowd, is her magnetic presence and a unique one-woman-bend approach while performing live. In her prominent single “Zovi ju mama” (Call her mama), inspired by wildfires all over the globe, she flirted wit dub and psy sounds to channel an important eco message.
Aklea is a definition of a traveling musician – her first singl “Da mi je” was recorded on an adventure moto trip through Brazil and for each of her new ones she handpicks the exotic location. Aklea had the honour to be selected for Femme Nouvelle compilation and to stand voice to voice with the most well known singersongwriters in Croatia.
She is a big fan of sound system culture and therefore has a pumped up dub act with a selector Mirna. Aklea is keeping it authentic, lyrically slick and above all, conscious. Always ready to spread her circles, Aklea recently finished her first tour with over 40 concert dates from Berlin to Dubrovnik. She was spotted by one of the biggest Croatian roc-stars Bare and was, for a while, his opening act. Currently, Aklea is working on her debut album planned to be published at the end of 2021.
