Akua Naru | Poetry: How Does It Feel Now??? //"Live & Aflame Sessions" (Full-HD)
Akua Naru does it again. The hiphop wordsmith brings us back to why we fell in love with her "Journey Aflame" spoken word piece, "Poetry: How Does It Feel?." In "Poetry: How Does It Feel Now???", Naru invites her band DIGFLO into the studio to record a new version, and its ALL LIVE! Recorded and filmed in Cologne's famous Maarwegstudio2, Naru plays with the language like something out of a Toni Morrison novel. Accompanied by live musicians before a small audience, Naru reminds us of what it means to love and long for our beloved, and to never forget to stop, pause, and ask the poetic question: How Does It Feel....Now??? This live version is sure to make you holler...and you can find it on her new Live Album, Live & Aflame Sessions, released by Jakarta records on May 25, 2012.
Get it on Itunes, Amazon, or bandcamp.
