"Walking The Block" was released on okayplayer.com garnering an overwhelming response from music lovers across genres. Naru draws us in to this new live rendition of "...The Journey Aflame's" "The Block", which was released by Jakarta Records in Jan 2011. Accompanied by the digflo band, a guest string section, and Buffalo soul songstress, Drea D'Nur on vocals and piano, Naru retells this chilling tale of the realities of inner city blocks and the harsh circumstances people of color navigate when targeted and rendered unimportant, unseen, and unheard.
"Walking The Block" is the first song and video to be released of the live and aflame sessions series. Akua Naru: Live & Aflame Session will be released on 18 May 2012.
