Sudan Archives, "My Strings Propagate Through Space and Time"

Last month singer, violinist, and songwriter Brittney Parks dropped her debut album "Athena" and I can't stop listening to it. Her singing is R&B and hip-hop influenced, her violin playing builds from Sudanese fiddling in West Africa, and like many pop musicians she uses electronics to loop and layer different sounds. Check out some live performances of her song "Confessions" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sypqygUwGio) for an amazing violin riff and "Nont for Sale" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miG6Zec0lcU) for how she fuses violin plucking, playing, and singing!
