Somi **** (Music Reviews)
For an intimate, almost ethereal neo soul experience in multiple languages, check out Somi. This Illinois-raised singer of Ugandan and Rwandan descent describes her music as “…a conversation between jazz, soul and East African folk-futurism.” With an impressive vocal range and songwriting recognition, this artist has collaborated with the likes of John Legend, Cassandra Wilson, Mos Def and Paul Simon. Her new album If The Rain Comes First features Hugh Masekela.
