The Meeting Legacy – The Artistic Face of Emilie Nana.
The Geneva based, Lyon born, Cameroonian descendant has immersed in this creative outpouring since 2012, the album slices together an eclectic selection, sharing much of who she is.
Comprising of 11 tracks, including, Like You, which was released on Compost Black at the beginning of 2013; at that stage her second release, and one of five EP’s Emilie Nana has shared with the world. I’m Childish, So What! also features, having first caught the attention of the music community in July 2015. This gem inspired by Emilie Nana’s nephew, is based on the idea, that even as we grow up, we should still be who we are at any matter of time. It is the only track on the album carrying a French vocal, and enjoys a moody, loopy, no rules feel; and is an absolute imaginative jewel. Recently three tracks featuring on this album encompassed a remix release package, namely, Tolstoy’ Changes, Music and The Meeting Legacy, remixed by Manoo, Beanfield & Thomas Herb and Floyd Lavine.
This body of work enjoys the outpourings of Nana’s delicate yet vibrant being, striving successfully to separate from the rules that often limits art. Reimagining her life, she walks us skilfully through the eyes of a child, teenage outpourings, adolescent adorations and the mature conversations comprising subculture, struggle and diverse social influences. Having spent four years producing this prized work, Emilie Nana delivers an album that matches her unique playful yet mature spirit, summing up her soul in, The Meeting Legacy.
