An elegant global fusion based around a series of traditional Afghan folk songs, Songs of Our Mothers represents the inspired meeting of London-based collective Kefaya and Afghan singer Elaha Soroor. Kefaya, whose core duo consists of producers/players Giuliano Modarelli and Al MacSween, first appeared in 2016 with Radio International, a border-blurring panoply of sounds and styles that spanned flamenco, dub, Ethiopian, Italian, Indian, and more. With an Arabic name that translates to "enough" and wide-ranging multinational personnel, Kefaya specialize in forms of protest music.
