O’s Notes: Songs From the Soul“(Sama Rou) is a deep-rooted session, a collection of Negro Spirituals. This is music that is rarely celebrated but always heartfelt, especially when delivered in proper context as on this recording. Amina sings and plays piano delivering a performance that comes from deep within but only approximating the pains and emotions that our slave ancestors felt. The instrumentals are as impactful as the vocals, a testament to Meyers’ prowess on the keys. Sama Rou is a true story of hundreds of thousands; people who helped build the nation.
