From the rhythmic bosom of Africa comes a collaboration that is filled with all the warmth of home, melded amidst the undying love of sincere Soca aficionados around the world. In “Possessed”, Machel Montano and Kerwin Du Bois are joined on a spirit-infused harmonic journey alongside South Africa’s triple-time Grammy award winners, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The world famous male choral group have added their distinct and unforgettable vocal tones to such legendary albums as, Grammy winner Paul Simon’s Graceland. This is in addition to their uncountable nominations for Grammys, Emmys and Oscars over the years, and the multiple Drama Desk and SAMA Awards they have won for their consistently enchanting releases. This soothing yet compelling melodic production was done by Kerwin and inspired Machel to fulfill two lifelong dreams. The first being, taking Soca to Africa and secondly working with Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Poignant from start to finish, the track embraces a new frontier for all the artists involved, as it magnificently demonstrates our undeniable musical ties, which exist beyond all barriers of time and space.
