“My spine is Africa, the flesh is everything else. I imagine music like paintings, and picture political preoccupations, social problems, and love solutions with every color that I know, even when all my surroundings mirror me shadows and grey areas. Love is the only answer in dark times. We are not here to fight the power, but to find our own power with kindness and patience, just like Amilcar Cabral taught us. We are here to stay and plant a better future, because future is just now and our children deserve a better world than the one we received as a heritage. My new album “Zona Zero”, is the result of this mission, to respect my routes, but opening new horizons, even as an artist” Remna
