Singer and musician Aida Brandes-Hargrove writes, arranges and produces music. Aida is self taught and draws from a diverse pool of music with its main roots in jazz, hip hop and rnb, while also being informed by different influences from pop, classical and world music genres.
As a solo artist Aida has released two singles, 'Not a game' and 'Waterfalls' in 2015 and 2016 respectively. She teamed up with director Kate Marks (HBO access) to produce a very personal video project entitled 'ALMUT'. More recently she released "Faith No.5", a simple, yet beautifully moody and intimate piano and voice feature with an unexpected upbeat turn, followed by "That Bullsh*t" in 2018.
Her Big Band arrangements have been featured by the Roy Hargrove Big Band and Slide Hampton. She is also a proud Harlem Arts Festival 2017 artist.
