SOMI [UGANDA & RWANDA]- THE LAGOS MUSIC SALON

 
 
Somi, the NY-based songstress of Ugandan & Rwandan background, is readying the release of her major label debut The Lagos Music Salon  for Sony Music. The delicate, piano-accompanied Last Song infuses the singer’s previous jazz-oriented excursions with experiences she had while spending 18 months in Ilorin and Lagos. 
 
The Lagos Music Salon, out August 5 in the US, will feature swaying grooves like that below alongside fast-paced Afro-beat-inspired collaborations with Angelique Kidjo and a hip-hop leaning track with Common, among others. Watch the video for “Last Song,” premiering here today, and grab the single on iTunes.
