Courageous refugee from the torments of Somalia.  This album recounts the journey from the baleful world from which she escaped with her five children.  Canorous layers of luminous sound from a large ensemble of rock instruments, traditional percussion, string orchestra, many vocalists supporting the ancient quartertone inflections of her amazing voice.
