I have listened to new albums by Brave Waves and a sampler from LaLa, and their both great! Brave Waves has a lot of contemporary songs addressing universal themes as love, unity and spirituality. LaLa addresses the same themes in her own hip hop way and a solid groove tackling racism, spirituality and community.
Have a wonderful musical weekend!
