I am Abikanile. A bilingual Folk & World singer/ songwriter.
I was born and raised in Brazil but have spent most of my life in the UK and I believe that the diversity of my bicultural background has inevitably reflected on my musical influences and on the way I write my lyrics and songs, both in English and in Portuguese.
My music is a soulful wave of Brazilian and British vibes melted with soothing yet vibrant and eclectic rhythms and harmonies.
I am proud to have performed at Global Pride 2020 representing Pride in Surrey and have also released my charity single My Shining Star Yes, You Are! to raise funds for the UK Pride Organisers Network.
