Lookman Adekunle Salami is a man in his mid-twenties with a restless spirit and boundless creativity.
He makes charming indie-folk, songs that turn intimate tales into epic anthems and big issues into campfire laments. His 2016 debut album Dancing With Bad Grammar introduced a daring new artist and, coming less than two years later, The City Of Bootmakers is a bold step forward. It’s a record impossibly of its time. It is L.A. Salami’s state of the nation address. Time, death, life, living, hope: these are the big themes from which L.A. Salami has crafted his astonishing second album.
