This mini-album is the beginning of a series of songs that Germa has been writing and arranging that explore narratives of the diasporic life.
In Kenbe Fem Germa is particularly keen to explore how folk music is threaded throughout her life’s journey from Haiti, USA and now England. Being a migrant, she has come to identify with various cultures and finds that the best way to celebrate her unique experience of creolisation is through music composition.
