This week's Tune Of The Week is Your World by Loah, taken from her new EP When I Rise Up, due to be released on September 26th.
During the pandemic, Loah returned to her old vocation as a pharmacist to work on the frontline, while co-presenting RTÉ's The Heart of Saturday Night with Úna Healy.
When I Rise Up is an EP of poetry from the 1920s set to music, created in direct response to the current global situation. Your World takes its lyrics from the poem by Georgia Douglas Johnson.
The stripped-down 7-track EP features works by poets ranging from Langston Hughes to W.B. Yeats, reflecting the continuity of folk storytelling throughout the ages.
