The ‘Asha Ari Affair’ is a celebration of my identity, my artistry, and my roots.

People will have the opportunity to hear my songs like never before and I will also perform an unreleased song called ‘Proud’, which is centered around the theme of the show, making your inner child proud and loving you first before looking for external validation.”

Asha Ari, who was named as Hot For 2023 this year by Hotpress, is a singer-songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. She is half Ghanaian, half Irish, and grew up in Blanchardstown. She has been actively performing in the Dublin music scene since her teens, and has released many singles and an EP entitled ‘Freedom’ that enabled her to perform her original song also called Freedom with The National Symphony Orchestra and to perform on the Late Late show with Eleanor Mc Evoy, Mary black and Pauline Scanlon. Asha’s music combines elements of Pop, Soul, and R&B to create uniquely catchy and relatable songs. Her songwriting inspirations stem from growing up bi-racial, self-love, believing in yourself, spreading positivity and being true to oneself.

From the infectious beats of local DJ’s to the soulful melodies of Becky McNeice, the powerful performances of ShmoneyDoll, and the captivating voice of Alicia Raye, the night is set to be a celebration of female talent, diversity, and empowerment.
