Twist And Shout

The album is a tapestry of the Black experience that explores ancestry, the legacy of slavery, what it means to exist in an unjust society, and Dave Okumu's own family history. On his new project I Came From Love, he calls on a star-studded array of guests, including Grace Jones, Eska, Kwabs, Wesley Joseph, Robert Stillman, Anthony Joseph (who just won the TS Elliot prize) and Raven Bush. Rather than release solely under his name, Okumu has chosen the moniker 'Dave Okumu & the 7 Generations', which Okumu sees as "my actual ancestors, the ancestors of others, my musical ancestors, and my descendants"
