Color Blind feat. Alef
By: Henok Elias
I don’t think “conscious” is descriptive enough as a category of music. You woke? Well, what are you woke to? People are well aware of the negativity they perpetuate and spread through their music. Positive works better. Edifying works as well. Full Disclosure: I grew up with Alef Meheretu playing soccer and basketball and whatever else us rugrats did. But, this does not preclude game from recognizing game. Color Blind cuts through the ethnic divide that still chains so many of our brothers and sisters here on Planet Earth. To boot, this is accomplished with calming vocals and a beat that slaps. Follow his steps.
