New Track: Oddisee – “Al Mawrada” + MP3

 

“Al Mawrada” is an inspired track; Upbeat and airy, Oddisee draws from the nostalgia of his childhood in Sudan. The photo above is from Al Mawrada, which is a neighborhood in Omdurman, Sudan where he spent time with family and friends, observing the hustle and bustle. Oddisee in fact took the photograph himself during his last trip to Sudan; you can view more images from his trip on Flickr.

Underground photographer Jaecyne Howell has teamed up with NYC veterans Jay Locke (DanceTracks/ Lion1Music/ Soul People Music) and MKL (Lion1Music) to showcase a new, interactive work inspired by the life and work of artist Ernie Barnes (the artist of the painting featured on the television show, Good Times), on Monday, January 18th, at Littlefield. This installation will sport stunning visuals set to hypnotic sounds along with the debut of a new choreographic work by Desiree Godsell and Lia McPherson, entitled “Drum Major Instinct”, set to the MLK, Jr. speech mix by DJ Marshallito. A one of a kind interactive performance where your inspiration as an audience member is the axis of the party, so come ready to see, hear and move.
