Celebrating the Second Annual Arlington Juneteenth Celebration



Genre: R&B

Kayla Scales (vocals, piano, keys) and Oladipo Oyediran (guitar, vocals, drums) started working together musically in fall of 2016 in Dallas, Texas. It started with a couple jam sessions, then before they knew it they had a couple songs. From there, a budding friendship and love forged through musical creativity emerged. In 2017, they moved to Kathmandu, Nepal and started giving performances at a local bar named Booze Belly. It was then that Igimèjí was truly born! They wrote their first single “Magic” while still in the Kathmandu Valley, a song that details the beauty, pain, and setbacks of those months living in Nepal. In 2018, the music duo returned to Dallas-Fort Worth, where they immediately decided to continue the performance career they started in Nepal. They gave performances everywhere they could, from the living rooms of close friends to known stages such as Curtain Club and M.A.S.S and gradually made a name for themselves. Soon they added Jelen Farrow (drums) and Uzoma Aharanwa (bass) to fill out their R&B, rock fusion sound. From 2019 through 2021, they concentrated their efforts on performing live, writing songs, recording demos, building a supportive base in Dallas-Fort Worth and spreading their message of positivity everywhere they could. In spring 2021, Uzo departed from the band, while simultaneously, Igimèjí crafted and recorded their first EP, Two Trees, which was released on July 11, 2021. Then on July 18th, the band released their first music video for their single, Magic, through DayDream Media. With the release, came budding new changes, including a focus on visual media and a new member! Aaron Payton, of Melon Soda and dTb fame, joined on bass and background vocal. Igimèjí played at the West Main Arts Festival in May, the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in September, and the Ramblin’ Roads Festival in October. In between these festivals, Ladi and Kayla played their duo set around town as much as possible still, performing at the Wine Therapist and Herf’s Taphouse in Denton.
