about

BENSKIN is one of my latest compositions. I came up with the music based on a Cameroonian dance rhythm and spoke to Sarah about the concept of the song. I wanted to target the inequalities that I had witnessed in the recent events in the U.S.  I wrote the first verse:
I long for the day, 
My color, my kind,
My gender, my race,
Won't trouble your mind.
Sarah wrote the rest of the song and completely embraced the whole concept.
