Dave Okumu announces a live album from an unforgettable performance at The RoundhousePre-order now
Earlier this year, Dave Okumu released his first proper solo album I Came From Love as Dave Okumu & The 7 Generations. Today he is pleased to announce the utterly stunning live album from an unforgettable performance at London’s The Roundhouse. I Came From Love (Live from the Roundhouse) will be released February 2, 2024, via Transgressive Records. Today, Dave shares the live version of Eyes On Me with The Roundhouse Choir.
The album I Came From Love is a tapestry of the Black experience that explores ancestry, the legacy of slavery, what it means to exist in an unjust society, and Okumu’s own family history.
On Okumu’s project I Came From Love, he calls on a star-studded array of guests, including Grace Jones, Eska, Kwabs, Wesley Joseph, Robert Stillman, Anthony Joseph and Raven Bush. Rather than release solely under his name, Okumu has chosen the moniker ‘Dave Okumu & the 7 Generations’, which Okumu sees as “my actual ancestors, the ancestors of others, my musical ancestors, and my descendants”.
