I must confess I have never done anything like critique or review before,This is my first time.Though I had studied about how to do a book review .I couldn’t get myself to do one in actuality.
Thanks Cheri,and the wordpress team for the opportunity and particularly today’s task.
F.Y.I,I tried to ignore the assignment but on a second thought I might as well do it. It may not be diffcult to do,as I presume it would!
India Arie,is one of my favourite Soul diva. Intelligent,natural,with a deep sense of her spirituality. I got nothing but love for that nubian diva. The album Songversation is her recent effort and as usual she took this album to another level.
Songversation is a culmination of India’s journey in the past years and also expresses her growth even spiritually,She embraces life with a fresh and deeper understanding of the journey -Life.
A 16 track album,Songversation is blend of her neosoul and R&B flavor. All the songs are worth every listen . Each of the tracks speaks volume “Break the shell” inspired by Cicely Tyson is indeed prophetic,moved by you, I am light, Soulbird Rise are my personal testimony.
In terms of musicality and clarity of message ,India Arie knows how to engage her listeners .Authentic and down-to-heart soul sister=India Arie.
