Artist

Oriana Ikomo

Belgian musician Oriana Ikomo wraps her neo-soul and RnB vocals in jazz harmonies and electronic rhythms to create a gentle, comforting texture. Her unique sound was created during her studies at the Ghent Conservatory, and her debut single 'You' (2021) is a beautiful introduction to her delicate vocal qualities and dreamy atmosphere. It is a song about love and self-acceptance in the difficult times in which we live.

"Empathy should be the base of every relationship,” she has observed. “But sometimes even the people you love and who are the closest to you can suddenly seem very distant and feel apathetic. Alienation, especially in these times, is something that is becoming more and more common.

You is not a song about heartbreak. It is about the phase after the sadness and the anger. The phase where you begin to quietly regain hope that you can find the connections you once lost with others."
