“Now, after tirelessly devoting himself to building Musicians For Musicians (MFM), and achieving astonishing success with the project, SoSaLa has returned with a new release.
Nu World Trashed takes the concept of his previous release and expands it into new realms. The title describes the “Nu World” created by the Internet; and how we are “trashed” by it. It is a plea to remember and prioritize our humanity in a world that constantly seeks to reduce us to a commodity.” – Dawoud Kringle (DooBeeDooBeeDoo NY, 12/19/2020)
