Suthukazi Arosi is a singer, performer and actress from South Africa. In her homeland she has a ‘legend’ status. The international audience may know her from her Lion King and live stage performance, social activism, being an musical ambassador to both her country and the philosophy of Ubuntu - humanity towards others.
“Naked” features 10 brand new tracks recorded over a period of twelve years, 2 remixes and 3 interludes. The interludes introduce the listener to some of the traditional and tribal sounds of South Africa. Each with a specific purpose and theme.
The music tracks are musically and thematically within the sphere of Suthukazi’s earlier works, Ubuntu (2002) and The Journey (2004) as well as a host of releases on greatest hits and theme albums.
Naked | We people are naked from the inside as the outward manifestations of this world have brainwashed us into an existence that does not value life, the truth. As human beings we need to be grateful of the life given and blessed to be part of this planet by loving one another and to see things spiritually. This is the naked truth. This is what “Naked” is about. This is what Suthukazi Arosi is all about.
Black And White | Coming from South Africa this theme is never stale. It is a reality. Xenophobia, racism, is very real. In South Africa as well as in the rest of the world. We human beings consider ourselves civilised but many of us are still dwelling in racism, instead of embracing our colours and diversity.
The Philosopher | In my sleep I heard this song in my dreams; so beautiful to my ears. When I woke up I was still hearing it and to my surprise my son was playing the song. As mothers we nurture; we support; we motivate our children from all that is going around in the world; as they need us to guide them with the teachings from God, mother nature; to feed them, give them hope & faith so as to stand on their own feet and reach their goals; to stay positive against all odds.
Phambili Africa | We embrace the beauty and riches of the african continent beyond all circumstances. In spite of all the issues that are affecting the African continent, it is still strong and growing. So therefore Phambhili Africa! Awoyikiswa Ngokoyikiswa (Forward Africa! You are not moved)
