[embed width="600"][/embed]


Ghanaian-American multifaceted wordsmith — and "Okayplayer-to-watch" — Akua Naru comes through with another “Live & Aflame” session in Cologne alongside the DigFlo band. For the new clip she flips the title to her organic "Tales of Men" jam, performing it now with live flutes, arpeggio-ed guitar and a massive horn-section (stick through to 4-minute mark for that). Akua Naru's Live & Aflame Sessions, an inspired live revisit of 2011's The Journey Aflame, is coppable now. Stream it in its entirety below. Also, don't forget to check out Akua's Fela cover with ?uesto, Angelique Kidjo and Tune-Yards.
