Neï, artistically known as Bikôkô, is a 20-year-old artist born and raised in Barcelona. Brought up amidst a very artistic environment, Bikôkô was introduced to a vast variety of music at a young age: she listened to anything from Jazz classics, to Bach’s Cello Suites to performers of El Son Cubano. As a result, she was able to explore different sounds and identify those that she liked the most to incorporate them into her own music. Aura Aura is a clear example of that. It is a fully self-produced EP, a cyclical journey that explores how music integrates, modifies and conditions people’s daily lives. It is made up of six songs, each one symbolizing a part of the day and what it means for the artist. To achieve that, the young artist inspired mainly from the musicians that have influenced her the most: R&B and NeoSoul artists like Erykah Badu and D’Angelo, Tanzanian chants and West African rhythms. In July 2022 she releases her mixtape “No News Is Good News”, a more personal body of work which also showcases her growth both as a person and as an artist. She has been performing it live during the summer at festivals such as Primavera Sound in Barcelona and MadCool in Madrid.
