June 2006 was like the beginning of a fairy tale for Ayo: the German-Nigerian singer released her first album to international acclaim. Was this such a surprise? Perhaps not… You only have to think back to her live performance on the French TV show Taratata. Ayo utterly enchanted her audience and host with a live version of “Down On My Knees”, an instant hit, mixing pop, soul and dub. Her first album sold at lightning-fast speeds and Ayo began her career as an international artist. Since then, the singer has maintained her close bond with her French audience and for this eagerly-awaited concert at Jazz à Vienne, she will be treating us to her new album, Royal.
