The House You Were Born In
Home will always call, and sentimentality becomes your fruit, your comfort. This is a piece that speaks of memory, the magic trick of hearing your language, your lyric, your cadence, it sings of your home and displacement.
Songs of home always take us back, they always make us sad, they always make us happy, they always make us want. Even though the songs represent a past they still speak of the same context and experience within this present future.
The memory of home is captured here through the interpretation of old Ghanaian songs that ring of sentimentality and truth. A truth that you live, but it would be sweeter if you were home.
