Naomi Wachira’s reggae-infused folk sound was developed in Seattle via Kenya and “Beautifully Human” is her way of questioning inequality that happens among people because of perceived differences. Wachira’s full-length Song Of Lament is coming soon and she has an exact intent with the recording:
“If thereâ€™s one thing I learned from my parents, it is to try and leave a place better than I found it. My hope is that this album will do just that. I know we are certainly living in dark times, but I hope that we will all find the courage to be light in whatever way weâ€™ve been giftedâ€¦ that we will seek to understand those who are different from us and find ways to both acknowledge and celebrate our differences and similarities.â€
Naomi Wachira’s Song Of Lament will be released June 2nd.
