Sent to me by Rick, this little clip of Somi is so uplifting!
“Somi’s songs gracefully fuse African-tinged grooves, supple jazz singing and compassionate social consciousness; they’re both serious and seductive.” -The New York Times
Born in Illinois to immigrant parents from Rwanda and Uganda, Somi draws inspiration from her multicultural background to create a lush Afro-beat and unique style of melodic storytelling.
And The Greene Space has been live streaming some excellent music to work by, or at least I have been tuning in to give myself a break from all the exhausting and endless Zoom meetings…
Today at 4pm tune into organist Cameron Carpenter, mezzo-soprana J’Nai Bridges, pianist Alessio Bax playing works by Beethoven and Battle of the Boroughs winners Charanams.
