Aurelia Dey & The Neighbors

Dance, afrobeats, dancehall music and dramaturgy, life-affirming and thought-provoking.

Through dance, music, acting and dialogue, Aurelia Dey is constantly finding new ways of expressing herself. She brings her pro-black and gender equality message along with her entertainment and talks openly about her mental health, linked to her Afrophobic experience as both Ghanaian and Swedish.

Sunday Service - Show
The performance Sunday Service (which is also the name of an upcoming album) is a solid musical experience with dance, afrobeats, dancehall music and dramaturgy. Aurelia Dey, her dancer and the live band "The Neighbors" offer a blissful mix of heavy bass, pondus-filled rap, energetic dance and soulful singing. Sunday Service is an interactive show where the audience is also involved and shares experiences, exchanges thoughts and the performance can be experienced as therapeutic in this way, every person in the audience is equally important and should feel seen.
Aurelia Dey & The Neighbors wants to reach out and unite people from different life situations and class backgrounds.

The album "Sunday Service" is planned to be released in late 2021. In the summer of 2020, the first single “Powerbank” was released, which attracted attention in SVT's PSL, Göteborgs-Posten, P4 Göteborg and Hymn, among others. In February 2021, the single "Rising" was released which was played on radio channels in Sweden, France, USA and Ghana as well as her latest single "All These Neighbors" which has received much attention in various feminist networks and been lifted on social media by e.g. Stina Wollter or instagram profile male babies. Aurelia Dey has written the songs herself and produced together with Partillo Productions, Lancelot Productions and Carl Ottosson. In addition, there are guest musicians on guitar, violin and saxophone.
