Welcome to Talking Tunes by Girls Are Awesome where we deconstruct female music artists and the processes around one specific song. Talking Tunes is hosted by producer and songwriter Vakle.
This episode is centered around badass rapper and singer from New Zealand, Ladi6, who dives into her more than ten years of experience in the music industry with the enthusiasm of a proper maverick. We caught her while she's busy on tour with the reggae soul band, Fat Freddy's Drop, and our conversation spans these touring topics to her transition from rapper to solo singer to her studio life and being a working mother.
The song in focus is called "Walk Right Up", a warm reggae tune off her 2010 album, Time is Not Much. Tune in!
