PREMIERE: Dahi Divine “In a Time of Favor”
"Finding beauty in the everyday struggle"
Philly native Dahi Divine is a tenor saxophonist, composer, producer and bandleader who pushes jazz into the contemporary music world on tracks like “Outro/Sway My Way.” When Rihanna performed a jazz-inflected medley of her hits at last year’s MTV VMAs, that was Dahi at work. A recent grad of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Dahi follows in the footsteps of Robert Glasper and Jesse Boykins III as he stakes out new musical terrain.
MASS APPEAL is proud to premiere a new single from his forthcoming album Soundsmith, a bold exploration of his musical influences, featuring Dahi rapping and vocals by Troi Lauren, Ime Divine and Lisa Payne.
“‘In A Time Of Favor’ pertains to fighting through the pressure and finding beauty in the everyday struggle,” Dahi explains. “No matter what you’re dealt in life, finding a way to make the best of it and truly overcome.” Check the sounds below.
