Marian Mereba 'Room For Living Remixes'

Listen to 'Room For Living Remixes' EP from Ethiopian-American soulstress Marian Mereba.


We've been feeling Ethiopian-American songstress Marian Mereba since Revivalist first tipped us off to her folky soulfulness. With today's release of Room For Living Remixes we thought we'd do our part to spread the ATL via Philly singer some love. The reworked collection transforms simplicity through soul on the standout original EP into rainy day, hip-hop concoctions with dreamy bass production. This one hits a bit close to home in the office, dots connecting all throughout the Okay fam. ?uestlove even gets a shout at one point. Snaps to OKA fashion guru Poundo for spotting Marian graced in Senegalese designer Selly Raby Kane's Seraka label for the above featured album art (more Prêt-À-Poundo thoughts on those modern shapes here). Listen to the remixed EP and watch the Philly native discuss her Ethiopian heritage with the Revivalist below.
