Akua Kamua is living the Jamaican dream of making music for the world to hear and enjoy. Kamua has been released to the world by Musik Radio Promotions and is enjoying a welcoming audience to three of the seven tracks on his new EP, ‘My Island Darling‘.
Clocking in at 7 songs of high quality, the new EP from Akau Kamau is a release that is formed around the themes of Jamaican and African traditions and, in the artist’s words, ‘Ancestral Reverence’.
Kamua states, “The inspiration for the theme came about as a way to respect our heritage. My music is both aural and cerebral. I attempt to create songs which speak for themselves, however as is the case with instrumental music, the tempo, instrumentation is used to convey this message”.
Formed on the belief that generally our ancestors exist around us in the spiritual realm, these songs are designed as a tribute to the sacrifices that they made, in order for us all to have the opportunities that we now enjoy.
Operating on several levels, the seven songs on the EP are each written with a message in mind, allowing each listener to develop their own appreciation and interpretation for each song even more so if the sleeve notes have been read and understood. It makes for a different experience for each listener, especially if they are aware of the undercurrent for each song.
It’s an innovative approach, and impressive from an artist who wrote, recorded and produced the tracks all under his own steam. With a search now running to expand the band and take the project forward, this is a promising time for Akua Kamau.
Musik Radio Promotions is happy to be a part of this “promising time”.
