Sankofa is the third album by Brooklyn, NY-based trio, California King. If their earlier efforts were decidedly rock, Sankofa echoes its myriad influences—from electronica to Caribbean to funk. The title track is a manifesto of consciousness, the band's way of urging people to look to the past in order to choose the superlative elements and influence the present and the future.
Se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki. Literally translated: it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot.
