Having just moved from New York to complete his masters in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, Baba Ali will inaugurate his debut album ‘NOMAD’ live at NT’s Bar on Thursday 24th November.
The main concept behind the tracks in ‘NOMAD’ draws from Ali’s personal experiences and musings on moving through life as a modern day nomad: “From relationships, to locations, through highs and lows, the answer always remains the same: keep it moving“.
His first single ‘Not Lovin’ You’ is the perfect insight into his bare-bones approach to songwriting and production: covering the visceral emotions felt across America in response to police brutality, perhaps now even more topical in light of recent events.
In regards to the subject, Ali states that “the message still remains relevant to what I see as a grave illness in America that hasn’t yet been properly addressed”. Though he’ll be touching on serious subjects during the performance, we’re looking forward to an evening of good music and good vibes from Ali next week… hope to see you there! More info here
