Naomi Wachira: "Beautifully Human"

Seattle-based singer-songwriter Naomi Wachira has released her fourth album, Song of Lament. Born in Kenya, Naomi has received accolades in many directions on her sweet blend of traditional African sounds along with a great folk sensibility, including being named “Best Folk Artist” by Seattle Weekly. In this video for her new song "Beautifully Human", Naomi turns to her Takamine Pro Series nylon-string, a guitar that her friend and fellow Takamine artist Damien Jurado pointed her toward at the start of her career. 

Naomi describes "Beautifully Human" as "a song that captures a simple push back of anyone who might think that a person is less than because of the color of their skin or anything in their outward expression that might be considered different or other. It is a celebration of the Divinity of every human being created." Sounds like the type of message we all need about now! Get Naomi's music on iTunes today.
