Tanzanian artist Lulu James is launching a new project this week called 3rdCultureKid with the release of this gorgeous new single ‘MTO’, and it’s also just the very first taste of a full-length album she’ll be rolling out this year!
“I hung out by the river nearly everyday in a place called Mto Wa Mbu. This is the place where my album was written and the place where my story unfolded. I reconnected with my language, spending time with family and musicians who helped me find my voice in Swahili. Mto is my first single and hopefully it paints the picture of the sunny and magical place where we hung out writhing music everyday.” – Lulu James
