IXCHEL kick off a new series called ‘The Sessions’, with a two-track release from Chisara Agor.
The two tracks embody Agor’s gifts for empathy, storytelling, and bringing to light the current interplay between the personal and political in London. ‘Forever’ and ‘Better Man’ point to an exciting label debut, with her Shadows and Searchlights EP arriving in the summer.
Building on her 2019 In-Between EP, Agor’s mercurial voice joins a seamless melting-pot of sounds; West African percussion, jazz, hip hop, bossa nova, indie rock, easy listening, and dub-inspired elements surface, all sumptuously produced by Agor and Ebi Soda’s VVilhelm.
To coincide with the ‘The Sessions’ release, Agor has curated a fabulous playlist featuring everything from Saul Williams, Tinariwen, Prince, Yellowman, Novalima and more. This is music for the mind, body and soul.
“Music is a powerful community, people don’t just make it but participate in it everyday. This playlist is just a slice of what my mind can run through, sometimes I want to dance, reflect or just sit still. There is music all over the world, we should not just limit ourselves to what we know.” – Chisara Agor
