back_home_01Melissa Aldana’s new Wommusic release “Back Home” was released on March 11, 2016 and has so far received a heap of praise from near and far. The very first review from none other than the New York Times called the album “a supremely focused statement” & “unburdened by legacy” here & the major Danish newspaper Politiken praises the album for it’s “rich and nuanced musical communication” (read it in Danish here).
