Aby Coulibaly is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter mixing 90s R&B beats and buttery vocals with insightfully observational lyricism. Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Aby takes inspiration from her Senegalese heritage and day-to-day Dublin life to create a sound that’s entirely her own. Described by gal-dem as “teetering on a precipice, with neo-soul on one side, and confessional rap on the other”, Aby melds worlds together with sparkling confidence and a distinct sense of identity beyond her years. Baring wisdom in her rich vocals, Aby writes songs that comfort and hearten, enveloping the listener and inviting you to take a step into her blissful universe.
