Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth 4LP

Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth 4LP

Label: Young Turks
Regular price $59.98

Kamasi Washington’s sophomore album Heaven and Earth not only fulfills its overarching ambition, but illustrates the dialectic between seen  and  unseen,  real  and  imagined,  citizen  and  culture,  self  and  self,  as well as self and other, and does so through the lens of a mature but never  jaded  revolutionary  consciousness.  The  artist’s  own  words  best  convey the inspiration behind this monolith of an album “The world that my  mind  lives  in,  lives  in  my  mind.  This  idea  inspired  me  to  make  this  album Heaven and Earth.  The reality we experience is a mere creation of our consciousness, but our consciousness creates this reality based on those very same experiences.  We are simultaneously the creators of our personal universe and creations of our personal universe. The Earth side of  this  album  represents  the  world  as  I  see  it  outwardly,  the  world  that  I am a part of. The Heaven side of this album represents the world as I see it inwardly, the world that is a part of me. Who I am and the choices I make lie somewhere in between.”
