Song of the Day: "Petit Afrique" by Somi

It's always exciting to come across musicians who are artists in the truest sense of the word. Somi is an an artist, through and through. From her thoughtful and playful lyrical constructions to the gorgeous melodies on which they dance. Somi makes music for the African diapora and for the people who inhabit it. She makes songs that make you feel understood, that make you feel connected to those who live within the words and sounds of her songs. Her newest album is called Petit Afrique. The songs I have heard so far are "Alien" and "Black Enough". The first is a reworking of Sting's "Englishman in New York" that re-imagines the protagonist as an African. The second takes up the topic of identity politics within the black diaspora. Both are spectacular song. Somi and her music are blessing. If you haven't already, get hip and marvel in her artisty.
