Grammy-nominated and internationally acclaimed vocalist, songwriter, playwright and actor, Somi Kakoma has built a career of transatlantic sonicism and storytelling. Somi pays tribute to the woman largely regarded as one of Africa’s first international superstars: Miriam Makeba. Somi’s lifelong love of Makeba’s music and personal strength inspired this rediscovery of Makeba’s life and work. Somi states, “This album is my attempt to honor the unapologetic voice of an African woman who inevitably made room for my journey and countless other African artists.”
