about

Following the club vibes of Fatige, Grace returns to her unique Afro-Kreol style, as heard on her "Welele!' and "FANM:WOMAN" albums, and stages all over the world, for the forthcoming single Home.

Using rhythms from the Indian Ocean and East African coast, Home is guitar and percussion heavy with an Afro-Rock sound. A little West African flavour comes courtesy of Perth based Ghanian musician Moses Nii Odartei, who contributes percussion and vocals.

Grace says: “Home is sung in English, the lyrics suggestive of slaves or even migrants yearning for home, but is hopeful, vibrant and defiant rather than sorrowful. It’s about going back and reconnecting with the motherland.”

lyrics

Take me back
We're gonna find our way home
To a land far away
Yes we're gonna go home

Take me back
We're gonna find our way home
To a land far away
Yes we're gonna go home

Take me back
We're gonna find our way home
To a land far away
Yes we're gonna go home

We'll find a way back
We'll find a way back
We'll find a way back home
Way back home

Take me back
To a land far away
Yes we're gonna go home
We're gonna find our way home
Yes we're gonna go home
