LISTEN: Just a chat with Senita Appiakorang

By August 2, 2020 No Comments

Every now and again, you come across a band that you wish you’d known your entire life. For Louise Bruton, that band is the Cork-based funk band Shookrah…

Minutes before I sat down to chat with frontwoman Senita Appiakorang, the band announced that they were calling it a day. We discuss the difficulties that Irish musicians face in general and during a pandemic. We also talk about her move from South Africa to a Direct Provision centre in Kerry and the musical education that came with that.
