In a review of Keturah‘s new self-titled album, Americana Highways writes, “I don’t understand the language but the woman’s voice gets into my head. It decorates my mind with so many bright musical colors. I’ve no answer. From the opener “Ku Nyumba,” Keturah’s words & melody come from the same well of inspiration as Paul Simon with Ladysmith Black Mambazo & Johnny Clegg’s Julukka (“Scatterlings of Africa”). The 27-year-old comes from Malawi. This is her superb 10-track debut which chronicles her adventure from a tiny remote village (Monza) to the shores of Venice (California). It’s a mix of traditional Malawian folk music with a generous pinch of contemporary rhythms.” The full review is here.
Recorded at and released by Hen House Studios, Keturah is at radio now. Get it started this week.
