We introduced different times Paris-based singer-songwriter ALA.NI (aka Alani Charal). Three years after her first full-lenght, she released her sophomore album Acca which features Iggy Pop and Lakeith Stanfield. Now she’s back with a new track called “Lament for Emmett Till” which features Adrian Younge.
It was originally released on August 28th to memorialize the 65th anniversary of Till’s death. In “Lament for Emmett Till,” ALA.NI recites a 1955 poem of the same name by the radical activist, journalist and organizer Claudia Jones over Adrian Younge’s lush, cinematic production. Watch the official video below.
