Australia songstress Anikiko is that rare combination of talent, creativity, passionate vocals and natural beauty, fusing words with melody and magical ease, a unique gift. She won Gold in the Australian Music Category of the ACS, and her vocals give talented artists like Bjork and Portishead a run for their money. Quirky and sensuous, Anikiko embraces the passion of Aretha Franklin, the soul of Billie Holiday, and the romance of Jeff Buckley, among many others. Her songs fall into the Singer/Songwriter, Electronic, Alternative, and World music genres-all hauntingly mesmerizing.
Born in Czechslovakia, Ainikiko currently calls Australia her home but is the type of artist the entire world will one day soon embrace everywhere she goes to perform her incredibly beautiful and wide reaching music. Anikiko has performed at the Peats Ridge Festival, Bondi Winter and Summer Festivals, International Harmony Film Festival, and is a regular at Sydney’s Zeta Bar, Opera Bar, and other local music venues. Among complimentary things written about her are “Anikiko’s voice has the smokiness of a jazz singer but she can also unfurl a purity of tine to woo the cerubium, as she does on a lullaby. Stunning.” words of praise from F. Merson of Limelight, who believes, as many do, Anikiko is set for a very promising future. She has thus far released two EP’s, Soul Naked Before You and Opening, as well as her 2010 album Fibonacci’s Steam, quickly making a name for herself as the next big thing on Australia’s alternative music scene. Departure Lounge says “Anikiko is the new Portishead of the Y Generation. Her music is inspired by many musical greats of many genres and eras, with a sound that is mellow yet edgy, uplifting yet calming, sexy yet coy."
