Sandra Nankoma’s Debut Album Ye’nze – Fezah Press Launch
YE’NZE, Sandra Nankoma’s solo debut presents a new age of soul from Uganda. A combination of tribal lyrics taking one through a journey of the artist’s upbringing coming from a Muganda mother and a Mugwere father, the album titles fuses the respective words meaning “It’s me” in her two native languages.
With the the influence of the 60-90s legends of soul like Farida Sonko, Miriam Makeba, Anita Baker, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu – the music is about sharing these generations. Transforming from her past fame as Sandy Soul to Sandra Nankoma, this album is perhaps inevitable to miss-the vocal soul star covers the musical baselines of Jazz and soul-ballad with a distinctive identity and tune that will break barriers of an African soul singer and take the world by storm.
As a singer, song writer, Sandra Nankoma has collaborated with Multiple geniuses on this project: Kaz Kasozi her Mentor, producer and Music director of Littleroom Studio, Uganda; David Felgeirolles, of Future Paradise Studio, France; Michael Avron, Christophe Pittet and Felix Sabal-Lecco.
YE’NZE drops this week on Thursday 22nd February 2018. A press listening session is held by Fezah App at Design Hub on 11th of March. You can find the album on all digital platforms including iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, Believe, and CD Baby.
If you’re a devoted lover of soul, this album is a different soul that you never heard before, it is Ugandan and you can not miss its generational expression. Welcome to the new Age of Soul!
