Imani Uzuri

Imani Uzuri brings her global experiences to her latest album, The Gypsy Diaries.  Uzuri breaks out of the mold with an eclectic ensemble of instruments, from the sitar to Middle Eastern-inspired drums and Japanese-inspired woodwinds.

The diverse set of melodies and rhythms complements her vocals, which channel the roots of Uzuri’s rural-North Carolina upbringing.

 “Ultimately, this album is about finding my place through the traveling,” Uzuri explains, “the communion, the loneliness, victories, sadness, losses, euphorias, revelations, transformations coming to understand that I am always here: home.”
