Hi Meltingpot Readers,
Some things in my life are just constant. For reasons that must have something to do with the moon I was born under or the arrangement of the stars when I pulled in my first breath, I am drawn to the mixing of cultures.
So, I was in my car listening to NPR on Friday and caught the very tail end of an interview with a singer. I only heard 30 seconds of her voice but I immediately fell in love. Like instantly. But I didn’t catch her name, only that she was Swedish and had performed at SWSX. As soon I made it home I did a quick Google search with the tiny pieces of information I gleaned from the radio interview and soon met Seinabo Sey on the Internet. Based on what I just said before about being drawn to the Mixies of the world, I could only laugh when I discovered that Ms. Sey has a Swedish mother and a father from The Gambia. She writes her lyrics only in English because she never felt at home growing up in Sweden. Maybe this is why I am drawn to Mixies.
Anywho, if you’ve never heard of Seinabo Sey, I’m sure you will soon because she has a powerful voice and a unique story. You can tell everybody that you heard about her here on the Meltingpot first. Enjoy!
