Sandra Nkaké & Jî Dru - Inspirations

Sandra Nkake and Ji Dru Inspirations Mixtape

"It took us a year to conceive, write and produce Nothing For Granted, Sandra Nkaké's new album, home-made songs that tell individual and collective fates that meet. A new album is an instant. It's a new fire to lighten up. We felt the urge to share the ideas, state of mind, direction and energy we express everyday to redefine our destiny. Here's some of the music we listened to between takes, in the car, on holidays, after the mix, in the street. A musical journey through what fed our fire." (Jî Dru & Sandra Nkaké)
