Shamans of Sound release Strange Mother ft. Chris Lee

Hailing from Washington, DC means that the Shamans Of Sound is made up of a diverse group of individuals who come from around the world. As such, the Statue of Liberty, aka the Mother of Exiles, is an enduring symbol of freedom and opportunity. As a tribute to this Mother of Exiles who has provided shelter for these musicians, the Shamans of Sound have recorded their own Mother of Exiles Riddim. They have invited a few other Washington, DC musicians to feature on this riddim and the results are nothing short of magical. Proving that music is a mission and not a competition, get ready for some mind-blowing collaborations.
