“Messages of unity, love and well being as well as a conscious questioning of humanity’s ill practices and ideas.”
Brothers Reginald Omas Mamode Iv and Jeen Bassa are releasing a new album as Mama Odé, titled Tales And Patterns Of The Maroons, via Five Easy Pieces this October.
Described as having a “classic hip-hop format” at its core, the album also draws on jazz, funk, blues and reggae influences.
“The brothers’ natural vocals carry messages of unity, love and well being as well as a conscious questioning of humanity’s ill practices and ideas,” explains the label.
Tales And Patterns Of The Maroons follows the release of Mamode’s Where We Going? LP, as well as Bassa’s Cassava Pone LP.
