ClassicBeatz - Behind Ntale's Groove

ClassicBeatz - Behind Ntale's Groove

Playing tracks by

East West Quintet, Rick Parker, Greg Diamond, Tosin, Somi and more.

The concept behind my new album"Ntale’s Groove" started with one simple question, where am I from? Over the years I have become obsessed with finding the African roots to my heritage. But like most African Americans, I can only trace my lineage back to my great grandfather. Slavery and Segregation have made make it virtually impossible for me to go back any further. Ntale’s Groove serves as my imaginary journey to Africa though music.

This project also attempts to reconcile my own vision of Africa with its much harsher, more complicated reality.

I recorded this "Behind Ntale’s Groove" to showcase musicians that played on the album. This show features original compositions from some of the Ntale’s Groove musicians as well as music that influenced the making of the album.
