On the wavelength of tears, here's an all night show; melancholic glitter to dust off faces for sun welcoming. Shimmering with Saudade, Tango, Celtic, Erhu and Gypsy vibrations, 'The Sound Of A Flower' is mesmeric and beautiful.
Ma*JiD's music is defined by its angelic string sounds, aboriginal electric bass grooves, lush harmonic textures layered with a combination of acoustic/electric sounds and its heavy hip-hop influenced drums. The album itself is music that chronicles the development of jazz music from a New Orleans juke joint, a highly technical musical view of a modern city, a gospel bound violin with orchestra in a great hall and a socially conscience street anthem with the trap music swag to match.
