Music moves the soul the following selection are the sounds of the Sankofa Retreats. We have curated music that will stir the soul.
Our ancestors are from all over Afrika - the soul of our being has its start in Afrika. The Afrikan soul has been carried into our modern music and has become our Blues, R&B, RAP, Soul music, and every other genre of music from the Afrikan experience.
