Sons Of Kemet

Black To The Future (2LP)

Black To The Future is a bigger affair than previous Sons of Kemet records. The core group ―Theon Cross (tuba), Edward Wakili-Hick (percussion), Tom Skinner (percussion), and Hutchings ―is enhanced by guests such as UK saxophonist Steve Williamson, Chicago bandleader/vocalist Angel Bat Dawid, American poet Moor Mother, legendary British Grime MC D Double E, British artist/rapper/spoken word musical artist Kojey Radical, and more.

Hutchings says, ‘Black to the Future is a sonic poem for the invocation of power, remembrance, and healing. It depicts a movement to redefine and reaffirm what it means to strive for black power. “The meaning is not universal, and the cultural context of the listener will shape their understanding,” he continues. “Yet in the end, the overarching message remains the same: For humanity to progress we must consider what it means to be Black to the Future.”
