THE NATIVE IN ME

(IS GETTIN' RESTLESS)

The Native in Me - Shailah Edmonds
00:00 / 00:00

A SPECTACULAR, UNIQUE STYLE OF MUSIC IS ABOUT TO HIT THE WAVES. THE TIME HAS COME FOR AMERICANS TO INCORPORATE AFRICANS INTO THEIR MUSIC, AND VICE VERSA. THIS IS SUPERBLY DONE, IN MY NEW SONG, “THE NATIVE IN ME” (IS GETTIN’ RESTLESS), PRODUCED BY FAMORO DIOUBATE, FROM GUINEA, JOJO KUO FROM CAMEROON, AND SEAN DIXON FROM AMERICA. THE SONG INCLUDES AUTHENTIC AFRICAN INSTRUMENTS INCLUDING THE BALAFONE, TALKING DRUM, DJEMBE, AS WELL AS DRUMS, GUITAR AND BASS, PLAYED BY TOP NEW YORK AFRICAN ARTISTS.

THE BACKGROUND VOCALS, SANG IN THE MANDINGO LANGUAGE FROM ARTISTS FROM GUINEA AND MALI, ARE BEAUTIFUL AND MESMERIZING, AND BLEND BEAUTIFULLY INTO THE AMERICAN HIP HOP GROOVE. THE LYRICS WRITTEN BY SHAILAH, ARE FUN, TRUTHFUL AND EASY TO SING ALONG TO. THEY WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO GET UP, GO OUT AND MAKE A CHANGE, AS WELL AS DANCE. THE GROOVE IS INFECTIOUS AND HOPEFULLY WILL SPREAD TO THE HIP HOP, R&B, POP AND WORLD MUSIC GENRES.

"The Native in Me (Is Gettin’ Restless) is a fusion of African and Hip Hop Rhythm, with vocals by American that sounds like it could keep a party going for a full week! The groove on this song is classic & undeniably fun! If you're looking for something new you have to check out Shailah Edmonds." HIPTRONICMAG.COM  NEWHYPEMAG.COM
