Zara McFarlane shared two new songs “Black Treasure” and “Future Echoes” from her forthcoming album “Songs of Unknown Tongue”.

Zara McFarlane shared two new songs “Black Treasure” and “Future Echoes” from her forthcoming album “Songs of Unknown Tongue”. “Black Treasure” is inspired by an exploration of Zara’s Jamaican heritage, especially folk traditions of Bruckins Party, Dinki Mini, and Kumina ritual dances. Her new sound is the culmination of this research and a reflection on how the history of Zara’s ancestors affects her story today.

Four years after her critically acclaimed, produced by Moses Boyd, reggae oriented third studio album “Arise”, she changed her musical direction into more heavy electro grooves of producers Kwake Bass and Wu-Lu.

Watch below the video to Zara McFarlane two new songs “Black Treasure” and “Future Echoes” from her forthcoming album “Songs of Unknown Tongue”:

“Black Treasure’ explores how the echoes of colonialism still resonate in society today but it is also a declaration, proclamation and celebration of black British womanhood acknowledging what historically has been taken and what remains innate within”, As McFarlane explained.

An album’s musical director Kwake Bass is a drummer and producer, who has worked with Mica Levi, MF Doom, Sampha and Kate Tempest. Wu-Lu is a multi-instrumentalist artist and producer, with a solid body of genre-bending music, working with the freshest names emerging from UK Jazz, Soul and Hiphop such as Ego Ella May, Lex Amor, and Poppy Ajudah.
