Afropop first met Namibian singer/songwriter/bandleader Elemotho Galelekwe while researching our “Atlantic Journey” program in 2015. He’s getting ready to drop a new CD, and we have the first video here.
Elemotho is a deeply engaged and widely traveled artist. The song, “Black Man,” has a vibe of resistance appropriate for the new year we’re all facing. It also has an underlying sense of hope and optimism somewhat reminiscent of an artist from Namibia’s powerful southern neighbor, South Africa’s Johnny Clegg.
His album is set to come out in May. Follow Elemotho on Facebook for more information as it’s available.
