Artist: Poppy Ajudha
Track: Tepid Soul
Following her debut London show last night, Poppy Ajudha gifts us with her latest ‘Tepid Soul’.
With the track exploring themes of identity and heritage Poppy explains – “The song looks at the familiar fragmented identity that is constructed through being of dual heritage and therefore often seeming to not fit in either sides of your family. As people project their cultural fantasies of where I could be from onto me, the last line “am I the right shade for you” critiques colourism and the fetishism and exoticism that exists around mixed race women’s bodies.”
The release follows her first headline show at the Peckham Liberal Club in association
with ‘gal-dem’. Poppy went on to deliver her set with surprise performances from Kojey Radical and Connie Constance.
