jamila woods

Jamila Woods continues to make vital music documenting the experiences of Aftrican Americans, with politically charged yet beautifully rendered results. Outspoken without sacrificing eloquence, nuance and humour, her latest collection, ‘Legacy! Legacy!’ uses each song to imagine the personal experiences of twelve artists, writers and musicians whose cultural legacies exist in spite of the entrenched racism they’ve lived through. Sonically this builds on the bold, hook driven R&B of her previous record. If you’ve not yet discovered her and have been lamenting the lack of output from Ms Lauryn Hill over the last couple of decades, you need to hear this.
