Music has always been present in Baba Ali’s life. Born Babatunde Teemituoyo Doherty, he absorbed influences from New York hip hop and by wave music in his teens so his thirst for making his own music came about naturally. He formed Voices of Black with Jules Born and their talent was immediately obvious thanks to works like Her Flower, released in 2011. Following his duo work and some other collaborations, Ali moved on to a solo project with the release of his EP Nomad. The track “Cog In The Wheel” became a memorable underground hit to many. Ali then recorded the EP This House with guitarist Nik Balchin, in Los Angeles. As the first wave of COVID-19 hit and, with it, countless concert cancellations around the world, Ali and Balchin used the time to write and record the mixtape Rethinking Sensual Pleasure. Back in London, Ali started working on his first full-length album with Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip). Memory Device was released in August 2021 and it’s an invitation to take a journey down the artist’s musical DNA, where you’ll find hip hop, punk and more. Portuguese audiences will no doubt enjoy hopping on board for this journey at Super Bock Super Rock’s EDP stage.
