SANTURI SIGNAL ON OROKO RADIO
Santuri is a resident on Oroko Radio, a not-for-profit independent internet radio station which is based in Accra, Ghana. Oroko aims to connect, inspire and empower through conversation, collaboration and community.
Rough Cuts is a series of works-in-progress tracks by members of the community. Hear new directions take shape and feel free to give feedback.
A fresh Santuri Rough Cut just landed. This submission comes from Santuri’s Sisian who describes Ego Bruise in her own words: “Lyrically, a reflection on the words of my good seez Byarugabz, ‘battle scars turn to beauty marks’, and how the sentiment inspired a reckoning with my assortment of scars collected in drunken escapisms. #Pombesiosupu. Sonically, a song created strictly from Ableton’s core library of samples, kits, grooves etc., motivated by an attempt to create constant change in the arrangement of the track's elements - this is done in 2/bar loops... enjoy!”
At the end of each cohort we compile a playlist of music made during or as a direct consequence of the course. Take a listen.
