Loah – Cortege (Kormac Remix) Out Now

Kormac remix of Loah’s stunning track Cortege has been released into the world. Have a read about it below and stream the track on Spotify here.

Irish-Sierra Leonean artist Loah (real name Sallay Matu Garnett) is known for a distinctive sound that blends her African and Irish roots together to form tracks that are totally unique and individual to her. She released her first long-form project in the form of a six-track EP last year, This Heart and now it is getting a new lease of life in a brand new remix EP.

“Cortège is a song that was prompted by deep loss. It is about the curious and gentle nature of the feminine spirit, what it means, what it adds to our lives – qualities like nurturing, acceptance and unconditional love. The language it’s sung is in Sherbro, my Sierra Leonean grandfather’s native tongue. I was very honoured to have Kormac remix it as he brings his personal experience, depth of emotional character and profound musicality to the work.”
