Timaj Garad is an Ethiopian singer-songwriter and poet that’s based in Toronto. Having spent 15 years performing and writing as a spoken word artist, she is now returning to her musical roots. Her new single, “Black Gold”, is an empowering track blending wonderful poetry with Hip Hop and soulful R&B. The verses on this are so good, I can’t wait to hear more from her. “Black Gold” is taken from her forthcoming debut EP, Blooming at the Mouth, which is set to be released on March 5th. The song is out now on Apple Music and Spotify, you can watch her lovely video for it below.
