UKUNDA - BAKHITA

UKUNDA - BAKHITA

As a listener, different releases hook me in for different reasons — some for production, others for songwriting, and even some for visuals. 🎭 But Bakhita’s latest offering, “UKUNDA” fires on all of these cylinders and it’s all due to her capacity to always create ballads that hit you deep in your soul in a way that seems effortless. 🎶 In this respect, I believe that there has been an evolution in her music which continues to point back to her intentional writing process and devotion to executing her creative vision to a tee. 🎯 So, it’s no surprise that she manages to continue exceeding our expectations with a new record that not only contains a silky-smooth and infectious melody, but is also rooted in raw emotion, not losing an ounce of fervency from the heart to the pen. 🖋✨ And while conceptually the content is deeply introspective and existential, the song flows so seamlessly that it ironically provides a blissful experience for any listener. 🎧 The chorus is sung with a signature level of elegance that’s universally present in her discography, and stylistically each line has its own memorable flare, as Bakhita effortlessly proves that she’s capable of mastering any musical tempo, giving each lyric an equal amount of emphasis to lay out the song’s theme. 🎙 And while for most people achieving a fine balance between musical satisfaction and conceptual depth is no easy feat, Bakhita proves that for some, the ability to do so doesn’t just flow in small doses, but can flow in abundance, especially when you decide to tie a piece of your truth with it. 🎀
