Kamasi Washington Announces 'Harmony of Difference EP' with Tranquil Composition and Short Film "Truth"
For his first piece since 2015’s critically-lauded The Epic, Kamasi Washington lent “Truth” to The Whitney’s biennial celebration. The tranquil 37-minute, six-movement composition is accompanied by images from his sister, Amani Washington, in its full display at the museum, but has now been liberated in a 14-minute short film, directed by A.G. Rojas. “Truth” will appear on Washington’s forthcoming EP, Harmony of Difference, slated to arrive this summer, according to The FADER.
Watch the short for Kamasi Washington’s latest down below and head over to The Whitney in NYC for the full treatment. Pick up a copy of Kamasi Washington’s The Epic on iTunes today or head over to Amoeba to pick up the album as a 3xLP vinyl.
