ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“In Memory of Forgetting” is WanaWana's sophomore poetry album and it is a fusion of styles. It is spoken word and it is song. It is feelings communicated with sound.
The album is an unapologetic introspective into the sharp – and sometimes dark - corners of the artist’s interior life and a piercing mirror for the listener to see the same in theirs.
Over breathless, searing musical arrangements, WanaWana speaks rhythmically on violation, liberation, neglect, love and self-renewal. Her characters are close to home, yet far away. Some are now strangers to her but very familiar to the listener: the warm love that has grown cold, the dream that has been put aside and no longer appears, a missing father.
She delivers these heavy topics in light whispers.
“In Memory of Forgetting” is a sonic book of memories and lived experiences, an interrogation of vulnerability, brokenness and self- renewal. It is also at its heart a seminal work by an artist who wants the listener to remember to turn the page and never go back.
