WOMAN/LA FEMME marks the first musical collaboration between Ugandan Rwandese-American vocalist Somi and French-Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf. At its core, this effort mines the rich cultural heritage of both artists, articulated through the jazz idiom.

Somi’s lyrical inspiration was the thousands of unsung women who participated in protests and fought for change during recent dramatic social transition in North Africa and the Middle East, giving voice to the women who bore witness to the recent Arab Spring. Somi – Vocals, Ibrahim Maalouf-trumpet, Michael Olatija -bass, Liberty Ellman -guitar, Otis Brown III- drums
