"Redefinition and spiritual unfoldment are the muses that invoke my artistry."
The staunchness of Ukweli’s work reveals an ancestral duty and obligation towards the upliftment of all oppressed peoples of the Afrakan diaspora.
Kwame Ture’ spoke: “The culture of all oppressed is the culture of resistance. Thus all artists coming from an oppressed people must represent resistance in their art form. Anything other than that is betrayal.”
In response to the call of the eguns/ancestors past, BaJa WaKiri Ukweli will continue to “strive to seek truth” and challenge the presence of potential threats of Eurocentric worldviews, colonization and social norms through an unapologetic temperament, a penchant for self-expression and incessant intellectual disobedience.
STILL /Seeking To Illuminate Legacies Lost is an Afrakan centered ideological composite of ancestral visages that explores the spirit with a haunting frequency that will awaken insurrection.
