Nilüfer Yanya is a very talented English singer-songwriter who has made music since she began playing classical piano at age six. After the piano Nilüfer learned cello, then guitar, before beginning singing and songwriting when she entered secondary school.
She was born and raised in London, not sure which part, but that’s good enough. All the best folk hail from London.
One can never start too early I guess, and the talent really shines through on the few songs I have heard so far. I’m predicting this young lady will go far.
OK, so we’re here for the music right. Let’s get to it, you’re gonna enjoy it.
Odd video, but what a beautiful vocal for this cool song. I don’t think she’s really the gangster she is portraying here. All in all a great time was had by one and all.

Check out Nilüfer Yanya giving her own soul-inflected take on The Pixies’ ‘Hey’, alongside sax accompaniment from Jazzi. An awesome piece.
You can find this track on a Deek Recordings UK mix of artists titled Extraordinary Renditions.
Another beautiful recording, so much feeling in here, complete with a jazzy feel.
Such a cool groove. Something to just kick back and enjoy. I am totally in love with her voice.
Keep On Calling
