Description
Sung in Swahili, the sensuous opening track ("Ingele") of this impressive album by the daughter of Rwandan and Ugandan parents made the finals in the world music category of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Somi has a multi-octave range and a commanding grasp of musical genres.

"Richly textured…. She skates easily between worlds, touching on both smooth and raucous neo-soul, nuanced jazz expression and more than a dollop of East African tradition…. She sings of nature and of love, life, freedom and faith…. Somi commands a sizable, virtuosic band throughout much of the album, but ends it on a quiet and poignant note: the hidden bonus track 'Remembrance,' which she dedicates to the survivors of the Rwandan genocide of 1994. On it, Somi's voice takes on otherworldly characteristics as it rides pure waves of sound, hauntingly reverent, intense and utterly captivating."—All Music Guide
