Master T treats us to a lovely sit-down with group and movement leader, Toronto artist and community organizer, Amai of Amai Kuda et Les Bois!
Amai, joined by her son Imoja, discussed their upcoming album EmUrgency!, which dives into African traditional spirituality while mixing influences from Afrohouse, neo-Motown, alt-rock, hip-hop all the way to downtempo. Much like a lot of Amai’s material, the work focuses on the relationship between the human and the divine, relationship with spirit, while also simultaneously political.
