Native Sun are a London based duo consisting of bilingual rapper Mohammed Yahya, born in Mozambique, South East Africa and singer-song writer Sarina Leah born in London with Caribbean roots. With a rapidly growing buzz due to their electrifying performances and their recently released video ‘Legacy‘ which has been getting exposure in Portugal, East Africa and U.S.A where they’ve just returned from doing a six week tour (which included an scene stealing appearance at SXSW, picked as one of the festival’s ‘Ones To Watch’), Native Sun decide to drop their new album ‘Indigenous Soundwaves‘.
‘Indigenous Soundwaves’ is a beautifully compiled 10-track album in which Sarina Leah’s sweet melodies perfectly fuse addictive Afro-Beat inspired head bouncing Hip Hop undertones, conscious bilingual lyrics and catchy hooks perfect for a climate in need of an uplifting message.
‘Indigenous Soundwaves’ features collaborations with Akala, Spoken Word Poet Amen Noir as well as a combination of UK and internationally based producers. Gallery Of Dreams is a perfect example of what Native Sun are all about. A sofy soulful vibed groove which switches between Sarina Leah and Mohammed Yahya. When Sarina is singing its a full on soul track and when Yahya is on the mic its classic Hip Hop. Give it a moment and soon you’ll be hearing what everyone else hears – a straight up vibing track produced by Thief and Steele.
