With classic boom bap hip hop sounds, socially conscious rhymes, jazz-soul elements, Germany based Naru has garnered attention and accumulated rave reviews. Being associated with artist movements such as the 90's hip hop era and acts such as Lauryn Hill & The Roots, Naru's musical and poetic gifts have been appreciated among hip hop circles and are amplified within live performance. 

Representing strongly when performing with The DIGFLO Band, a six-piece ensemble including drums, keys, saxophone/flute, bass, guitar, and turntables, Akua Naru and her band have a reputation for captivating audiences, hyping crowds, and inspiring many. Clearly, her music and performances are a testiment to the legacy of soul music and the powerful trailblazing female artist traditon on which it builds.
