3rd Culture Kid: Mto

Every day is a chance to reinvent yourself and become brand new. For singer Lulu James, a.k.a. 3rd Culture Kid, that means embracing her African culture by returning to her birthplace of Tanzania and letting her roots soak where she first learned to walk. During the last eight months, Lulu cleaned her figurative slate and is now forging ahead with a new sound -- a patchwork of old and new experiences woven into songs that she's now ready to share with the world. Check out the first single, "Mto" (River), below, along with accompanying remixes from Kidnap Kid and Swarm of Bees.

I hung out by the river nearly everyday in a place called Mto Wa Mbu. This is the place where my album was written and the place where my story unfolded. I reconnected with my language, spending time with family and musicians who helped me find my voice in Swahili. Mto is my first single and hopefully it paints the picture of the sunny and magical place where we hung out writhing music everyday.
