Selma Uamusse

Selma Uamusse’s first solo album is a journey in the unknown from the pursuit of her Africanness and her Mozambicanity, without being certain of  the path to take. For this, Selma needed to travel to Mozambique to recognize herself in the music of the place where she was born, to perceive how her body shudders when listening to the traditional music of that country and to conclude how, in the honest impossibility to be able to assume this tradition as her own, to find a personal way of relating to these roots. The result is an explosion of genres that belongs to many places and nowhere.
