IXCHEL are proud to present a super limited single release from the formidable Yazz Ahmed entitled ‘A Shoal of Souls’.
Released in March 2019 and marking the final chapter of her explosive 2017 album ‘La Saboteuse’, the single is ‘dedicated to all the people who have lost their lives crossing the sea in search of a better future’. The track is also inspired by Sufism, the idea of whirling and turning, falling into a trance or a dream.
This is the third project Yazz and Sophie have collaborated on, cementing the formidable working relationship between the two. After seeing her work visually ‘come to life’, Yazz was inspired to create, feeling ‘compelled’ to create this piece.
The track is also inspired by Sufism, the idea of whirling and turning, falling into a trance or a dream. Taking her cues from the music, Sophie’s work mirrors the idea of Sufism, while highlighting the ‘whirlpool of lost souls, of untold stories, talents and lives unfulfilled’ at the heart of this release.
