Strong third album from Mo’Kalamity

mokalamity-freedomofthesoulOn Mo’Kalamity’s third album Freedom of the Soul she takes a leap forward in terms of song writing and singing. It’s definately her finest set yet.

Once again this Cape Verde native and Paris resident has teamed up with The Wizards to set the musical backbone. It’s a twelve track roots reggae journey accompanied by Mo’Kalamity’s ethereal, fragile and distinctive voice.

She calls for spiritual awakening, change and protest. And she urges her fans to get up of their chairs and make a change for the better.

It works pretty well, especially in the militant and anthemic Overcome, where she is fiercer and more aggressive than perhaps ever before.

Jah Live is underpinned by a rolling bass line and a flute echoing in and out of the mix in the dubwise excursion at the end of the song. Producer and mixing engineer Fabwize has done a tremendous job on Freedom of the Soul.

Mo’Kalamity’s singing may be an acquired taste, but the riddims and the mixing is flawless.
