Kefaya + Elaha Soroor Songs Of Our Mothers Cover

The teaming of the collective Kefaya, with the Afghani-born singer Elaha Soroor proved to be an inspired one. Singing in an emotive, tremulous voice, Soroor’s Afghani folk songs were passed down from mother to daughter and tell stories of joy, pain, resilience and more, backed by empathetic violin, sax, flugelhorn, percussion and electronics. A Top of the World in #152.
