about

Na Kitabo (My book)
Is about humanity, cultural values, moral stories and personal life experiences. Hatred seems to be dominating the world and negativity is constantly dominating our views. These depressing realities somehow affect us all in different ways. Therefore it became essential for me to focus the direction of this album on little crucial things that are important to our happiness and to uplifting us.

A griot role in society is like a messenger who should inform, advice and bring people together in unity and harmony. For that reason I wanted to be that voice for my people and for all the listeners. I therefore decided to use this opportunity to convey the teachings and messages embedded in the songs with the hope that they could contribute to change and to constructing a stronger humanity and a better society.
