words, photos & video by josh yong. This track is definitely a sum of (Shukura's) musical direction and influences, and I love the way that she uses the lead guitar parts almost as a second voice. The guitar lines riff off her vocal melodies, they engage with each other in a conversational manner. The other thing that really strikes me in this performance is the conviction that she carries as a performer. You can see just how much she is enjoying the music, and you can’t help but be drawn in and fully believe that everything Shukura is doing is coming from a place of integral honesty.
