Okayafrica Video: Akua Naru 'Tales of (Wo)Men' (Live In Session)
Ghanaian-American multifaceted wordsmith — and “Okayplayer-to-watch” — Akua Naru comes through with another “Live & Aflame” session in Cologne alongside the DigFlo band. For the new clip she flips the title to her organic “Tales of Men” jam, performing it with live flutes, arpeggio-ed guitar and a massive horn section (stick through to 4-minute mark for that). Akua Naru’s Live & Aflame Sessions, an inspired live revisit of 2011’s The Journey Aflame, is coppable now. Stream it in its entirety below. Also, look out for Akua’s recent Fela cover with ?uesto, Angelique Kidjo and Tune-Yards.
