she didn't study her namesake specialty — Sudanese violin traditions — until she relocated to Los Angeles. Her uncommon expertise makes her music ripe with culture, improvisation & myriad surprises. The title track balances disjointed synths with moans & muffled lyrics like weighty raindrops on a palm plant. On "Nont For Sale," pizzicato strings tiptoe over the bassline as the artist's words glide over the beat with the elegance of a gull's wings in the breeze. By the time you get to "Escape," the project's crescendo of a closer, the unexpected blend of folk, Afrobeat & R&B feel like a euphoric sun shower.
