Instrumental EP pays tribute to the traditions of Akua Kamau’s Jamaican heritage
Clocking in at 6 songs of high quality, the new EP from Akau Kamau is a release that formed around the themes of Jamaican tradition and, in the artist’s words, ‘Ancestral Reverence’.
Formed on the belief that our ancestors exist around us in the spiritual realm, these songs are designed as a tribute to the sacrifices they made in order for Akua Kamau to have the opportunities he now enjoys.
Operating on several levels, the six songs on the EP are each written with a message in mind, allowing the listener to develop a new appreciation for the songs once the sleeve notes have been read and understood. It makes for a different experience for each listener, dependent on whether they are aware of the undercurrent for each song or not.
It’s an innovative approach, and impressive from an artist who wrote, recorded and produced the tracks all under his own steam. With a search now running to expand the band and take the project forward, this is a promising time for Akua Kamau.
