I’m long overdue sharing info about Wayna’s most recent release, The Expats. A few months ago I received an invitation to attend an exclusive listening party. It was a great event and the wine, food and gifts represented Wayna’s Ethiopian heritage. The Expats is the latest release since Higher Ground in 2008 for which Wayna received a GRAMMY nomination for “Loving You (Music) featuring Kokayi in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category. While creating The Expats Wayna took a deeper look within to deliver a fresh, world sound. My favorites on the album were “Echo”, “Amazing” and “Freak Show”. Preview the album below and share your favorites in the comments.
