  • .. The Miner's Canary.. just amazing!
  • Hip-Hop is not dead :)
  • Akua Naru is crowdfunding to raise money to produce a film along with acclaimed Director Terence Nance (Pharaohe Monch’s “Clap” music video, or the film “An Oversimplification of her Beauty” among others are some of his works.) to produce a film based on her soon to be released album "The Miner's Canary". The film will illustrate a love story as told on the album. Set in contemporary Southern France, the film's story reveals a West African immigrant couple, deeply in love and in the midst of cultural conflict. The film, not yet titled, grapples with themes discussed within the world of the Akua Naru album. It would be great if you could share Akua's campaign and news of her new album through your channels. We all know how important it is that we represent ourselves through the arts. The film is one representation of that. Please support & share. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/akua-naru-x-terence-nance-short-film
