We are so excited to announce the release of our second album “Fruit of Hope” available now! “Fruit of Hope” features 12 new multilingual tracks carrying listeners even farther into visions of a world of justice, led by the high-energy musical fusions of Afro-Latin, reggae, hip hop and rock sounds. Several acclaimed guest artists from around the world are also featured on the album including: internationally renowned poet Naima Penniman; Chicago based multi-talented poet/emcee Michael Reyes; Melbourne, Australia based Brazilian vocalist Eliane Pinheiro; and Northern Indian Classical tabla percussionist Devesh Chandra.
“Fruit of Hope” is available on TainaAsili.com/store. Digital downloads and physical CD’s will be available for purchase in the coming coming weeks on most popular download and streaming sites including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
