Sound of Blackness celebrates their 40th anniversary with the release of their 10th album. We have all enjoyed the diverse forms of African – American music presented on every album and will continue to graced with even more wonderful music in the tradition of the great Gary Dennis Hines founder of the multi-talented international music institution.
Focusing on themes of reconciliation, healing and “Ubuntu”, translated from its Zulu origins as “humane-ness”, Gary Dennis Hines the founder explains: “Music can be our primary method, mode and means of avoiding annihilation and achieving peace. Music is God’s perfect form of communication, because what comes from the heart reaches the heart, what comes from the soul reaches the soul and what comes from the spirit reaches the spirit. At the very rhythm and heart of humanity is Ubuntu – “I am because we are and I am what I am because of you.” “We are human because we share the human characteristics of generosity, consideration and humanness toward all others.”
The three time GRAMMY award winners have released the album’s first single entitled “Fly Again” featuring track co-producer and co-writer Christian rap artist Xross and special guest Jamecia Bennett, the daughter of former Sounds of Blackness vocalist the amazing Ann Nesby.
The Sounds are highly regarded for their singing of traditional spirituals, “Soon Ah’ Will Be Done” and “Ev’ry Time I Feel The Spirit” will be on this self-titled sixteen-track CD from the GRAMMY-winning band. Promising an collective time piece for your music collection, we recommend the purchase of “Sounds Of Blackness”.
Sounds of Blackness will be available in all digital outlets and stores
