Musical Musings from Michelle November 2021

It has been FAR too long since I shared some music with you so this is what has been coming through my headphones of late so here is my offering for November…..

Loyle Carner “Loose Ends”
This young hip hop artist is a true poet, I just love his voice his lyrics and his ethics – he lives with ADHD and helps kids through cookery, hats off to him, he is only 27 years old, a very impressive man, have a listen (lyrics contain the F-bomb just in case you are having a kitchen disco with your little ones…)

Olafur Arnolds and Nils Frahm featuring Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir  “Particles”
Just a sublime song, very haunting, usually makes me teary…..enjoy

Jamilla Woods “Giovanni”
This young woman impresses me so much, again, so young (at least to me!) at 34 years old. This beautiful song was inspired by the poem “Ego Tripping” by Nikki Giiovanni , you can read it here https://poets.org/poem/ego-tripping-there-may-be-reason-why
Jamilla’s mission is described as “to champion forgotten voices in black art by building on the legacies they left behind. Woods is not just a poet, musician or youth worker but a beacon for self-empowerment” read the article here https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/may/08/jamila-woods-i-want-to-pass-down-the-power-to-speak-on-how-you-should-be-treated
(lyrics contain the F-bomb just in case you are having a kitchen disco with your little ones…)
