The new single by US based Nigerian, Drummer, Composer and Vocalist, Tosin, is a conscious attempt at expressing the voice of the masses through an upbeat Afro-punk music.
On this Recording, Tosin employed some the talents of some of the Musicians he recorded his debut album with in 2006. The anthemic chant of “What Are We Gonna Do” is spellbinding. The instrumental solos and heavy drums will also take the listener on a journey that can best be described by the listeners, as the music will speak for itself.
Enjoy the track: What Are We Gonna Do? below.
“What Are We Gonna Do?” , According to Tosin, “the song is a reflection of the collective question in the hearts of people across the world, asking the same question about their experiences and daily realities concerning terrorism, recession, mass exodus to refugee Camps, unresolved Police brutalities, Political shenanigans, religious lunacy and racism.”
Winner of the Maryland States Arts Council (US) “Best World Music Composition” 2014, Tosin is relentlessly launching ahead with new directions in music. His music influences include Incognito, Seu Jorge, Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Art Blakey, Manu Dibango, Ella Fitzgerald.
