As a part of Melbourne Music Week Afro Hub will present Nynno Bel-Air @ Kathleen Syme Library.
NYNNO is a Melbourne-based singer/songwriter whose sound is a brooding blend of RnB, Pop, Soul and House. With music being at the centre of her creativity from a young age, she started out singing in choirs throughout school. Upon moving to Melbourne, she joined the Melbourne-based musical collective, The Outside Inn, where she contributed soothing and soulful backing vocals to tracks and live shows. It was here, under the guidance of Singer/Songwriter/Producer, Matt Hall that she began to explore her songwriting, laying quirky, esoteric verses on a tracks spanning a variety of genres.
Since then, Nynno’s sound and songwriting identity have taken form as a result of her eclectic music tastes (she’s inspired by the likes of Sade and Brenda Fassie, to SZA and Solange) as well as numerous collaborative sessions worldwide. Such sessions have included the collective DJ ensemble OSIRIS DCLXVI, DJ Rie, and Loota (from hit record It G Ma), while she was living in Japan in 2016, dabbling in trap-soul-esque tunes that were reminiscent of the Awful Records sound. Her Melbourne-based collabs also include artists, DJs, producers such as HVNCOQ, Wolfi and Oscar Key Sung.
This year has seen Nynno begin to blossom as a solo artist, with a debut live performance at Melbourne Music Week in November 2018, follow up by shows at The Pennyblack, The Evelyn (Melbourne Hip Hop Festival), Section 8 (The Great Outdoors), and Geddes Lane Ballroom, supporting Julien Dyne (New Zealand). Nynno is currently working on a debut project with HDSNJMSJR (producer for the likes of Baro, and Co-founder of ESESE Collective) and DJ/producer Nightwrk. A dreamlike soliloquy, this collab plans to be an honest recount of self reflection, relationships and conflict, with cut-through lyrics that leave no thought unturned.
This is a family friendly free gig.
