The album this time is Oremi. A very eclectic mix of music styles and her voice is simply outstanding.
Now the obvious song on the album is a version of Jim Hendrix’s Voodoo Chile. You can watch that here.
My favorite you can watch here. As usual very hard to pick one over the other to be honest. This track, Itche Koutche is a bit more upbeat but another track on the album called Never Know is also very special.
The whole album is here. Enjoy folks.
