Acoustic Soul: India Arie

A bag full of awards and nominations have been collected by this soulful lady in the last few months. This is rootsy R&B, with plenty of soul…. think Lauryn Hill/Angie Stone/Erikah Badu. Contemporary production accompanies acoustic guitar, live drums and pure funky bass and then there’s the voice - seductive and silky.

Standout tracks include “Video” with a subtle hint of the feminist within, and the track “Brown Skin” possibly written with the bedroom as the backdrop, such is the intimacy it conveys. This cd offers a sensual melodic tonic to those who take the time to listen.
