Afghan singer Elaha Soroor and award-winning duo Kefaya (Al MacSween & Giuliano Modarelli) join forces for Songs Of Our Mothers. This mighty and mezmerising new album, is a collection of folk songs traditionally performed by Afghan women. It draws on Elaha's own experience of fleeing Afghanistan, and the struggles faced by many other female artists. The US and Western-backed regimes that came to dominate Afghanistan in the latter part of the 20th century created a climate of heightened patriarchal oppression and persecution of women. These songs, filtered through a myriad of forms, from spiritual jazz and dub to Indian classical music and electronica, tell the stories of joy, pain and resilience, passed from mother to daughter in times of hardship and oppression while also celebrating femininity, sensuality and the spirit of resistance.
