Mela9 – Diaspora II: An Afro​-​Brazilian Love Affair

Continuing along the global pathway of the Diaspora, this project has been in the works for quite some time. The process of creating it sent me on a path of musical and self-discovery that was as unexpected as it was rewarding. In this installment of the Diaspora Series, we delve into the rhythms of Africans in the Americas: South America specifically, and Brazil to be precise.

Soon to be released in limited edition cassette format, with a short novel (written by me). I hope you all enjoy. Peace and Blessings.
