VIDEO: Waberi Jordan — “Sunflowers In My Garden”

Soulful, spiritual and jazzy. Yep, that's Waberi Jordan!

Great to see this new video from LA-based singer-songwriter, Waberi Jordan.  Those of you who’ve attended the URB Alt Festival, have see her.  As well you may remember her as the woman who’s done a pretty killer version of “Strange Fruit”.

As you can hear in the song, Waberi combines her interest in the spiritual and her jazz training to superior effect.  One of the things the separates her from other singers who try to do this (paging Georgia Anne Muldrow, anyone?) is that she’s a really strong songwriter.  Which makes “Sunflowers In My Garden” a joy to listen to.
