A few days ago, American poet Sunni Patterson, who is also known for her musical skills, shared a new song entitled Ancestor Song.
This is how she described the track:
“Patterned after the hymn, Precious Lord, Ancestor Song pays homage first, to my own personal Ancestors, then to the collective Ancestors that guide, protect, and support our lives. I wanted this track to be as organic as possible, using what was around me…my hands, my ring tapping the mic stand, a spoon and bowl, an orange juice bottle, etc. I knew I needed my god sister, Jew-el, to bless the piece with her magnificent voice, and my dear Baba Egunwale’s prayer (that he just left on my voicemail. lol. Ha! Blessings all around!) to enhance it, as well. I actually recorded this over a year or so ago, and still this isn’t the “final” version, but I was compelled to share it- as it is.”

Karamanti has won the August 2018 Akademia Music Award for Best World Beat Song for ‘Be Yourself’! To be distinguished for creative excellence among a crowded playing field is an important achievement.
