"The songs are upbeat and energetic. My 4 and 7 year old daughters love to sing and dance along with Makeba ".( amazon customer)

aised in different cultures – from French to Arabic to African – singer Jain blends her different backgrounds to create an unmistakable fresh and unique sound. Jain emerged in 2015 with her debut LP ZANAKA (released 10/21/2016 via RCA Records). The album is full of rhythm and love – a true open-armed welcome to listeners and an immersion into a vibrant, soothing world.

Jain’s music stands in its own category as multidimensional, multicultural pop music. Her accent itself is something that adds much intrigue to her songs (i.e. “You Can Blame Me” and “Mr. Johnson”) and makes them even more fun to listen to.

The opening song “Come” is the perfect entrance. Jain sings,

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go
And this is exactly what Jain’s music does. It grabs ahold and does not let go. Jain’s rhythmic drums, guitars, and other beats make for an infectious sound and intriguing album all the way through.

 

Each song in its own right is breathtaking, but listening to the album as a whole is like being immersed more and more into a colorful world full of love and play and care.

In her song “Heads Up,” Jain sings,

"I see colors all around

I try to take them one by one
I try to put them on my mind
I won’t forget how they are
Time for me to see how much beauty this can be
if only I wasn’t so scared of how people can be
It’s time for me to try to keep all of my dreams awake
Away from the fear, from the hate we’ve made
Jain’s music often talks about overcoming oppression and hatred, being the best person you can be, and coming together to make a difference".
