Mankwe is like a version of Nina Simone and Erykah Badu, but we get to have her in our own backyard. Her improvisational technique, a skill she has fine-tuned through years of performing, as well as her world music influences, have melded together for a proper sophomore record in Science and Spirit.
Medium Zach is on board for the release, providing his production talents in sculpting Mankwe's raw lyrics into full compositions. It's a hopeful and profound record, and a unique addition to the Twin Cities catalogue.
Songs performed: "Come Closer," "Penny Saver" and "Henrietta Goes Electric"
