I am an Artist. That means that I see things, I make things, and I channel things. There are moments (like today) - where I get humbled and overwhelmed by the fact that these words chose me. They come through me, and so they’re mine, but they’re also more than that. As an Artist my job is to listen, let the magic do what it does, and capture what I can when I can.
ANNOUNCING our new EP: “I’ll Say It How I Want To”, due out June 8, 2018!! Click here to Pre-save on Spotify. Click here to Pre-order the digital album. This is our debut release as Makeda!, and this music is a long time coming - we are STOKED to share it with you all!! The album drops on June 8, and until then we’ll be dropping teasers, news, thoughts, as well as a NEW song and music video from the EP.
Today we’re announcing the decision to change our band name. As of today Music Bones is a beautiful memory and the era of Makeda! begins. Our new band name honors and pays homage to the real name of the Ethiopian Queen of Sheba, Makeda (pronounced ma kə da), as named and identified by the Kebra Nagast. This name change is our way of holding space to recall and correct histories that have been whitewashed, minimized and distorted by white supremacy, patriarchy and imperialism.
