WHEN THE JOY COMES-TOUR tickets: https://kj.de/artist/4684/Akua_Naru.html "My Mother’s Daughter" is the first single release off Akua Naru’s third and forthcoming studio album "...The Blackest Joy" (Spring 2018). The song, at times dark and mystical, at others bright and full of hope, is a rich narrative of black womanhood, agency, West African spirituality, lineage, and sisterhood. With West African influences, as evidenced by the song's introduction and its additional vocals (spoken & sung completely in Mina), Naru, once again, merges genres along the black music tradition and glides effortlessly between soul, jazz, and hip-hop. Filmed in Lome, Togo, West Africa and directed by Hamburg based artist Joachim Zunke, the video, to be continued, highlights Akua Naru, the mystic/ the traveler, and documents the marriage of her inner and outer worlds. A visual homage to black womanhood on the African continent and in the diaspora.
