Nsomesa Okwagala – Damascus Kafumbe


In an era of metastatic geopolitical fear and xenophobic loathing, most recently demonstrated by an irrational paranoia that Americans should be suspicious of all foreign influence, Damascus Kafumbe’s Teach Me to Love cycle EP reminds listeners that we live in a beautiful world. The record is also a reminder that the world is full of goodwill and hope if only we will love our neighbors and look to transcendent wisdom.
