Akala has just released his fourth album entitled The Thieves Banquet. Akala’s choice to recorded the whole album with a live band has given the album a unique sound and very different style from all of his previous albums.
Hip hop, soul, blues, jazz and rock make up this great album. So there is something to offer all you fans of these four genres of music. The twelve tracks that make up this album takes the listener on a journey from the history of the African Holocaust with the track entitled Maangamizi to the huge and continuing damage that our governments, corporations and banks play out every day with tracks like The Thieves Banquet and Malcolm Said It. In addition tracks such as Our Way, The Way and Another Reason makes the listener stop and take a deep look and question our way of life and how we can improve not only ourselves but each other and our society.
