Sometimes it is a hard job to expand your musical palette but artists like Canada’s own Doba create remarkable abstract tunes that will move your mind, body, and soul. This diverse musician combines inspirational lyrics with elements of Reggae, Soul and a splash of Gospel to create beautifully crafted entertaining music. Her latest self-titled body of work ten tracks of heartfelt compositions that offer encouragement and motivation while her lovely voice tickles your eardrums.
Doba’s sound is original; each track tells its own story of life, love and happiness. “Slowly” is a slow (no pun intended) grove featuring smooth piano chord progressions and Doba’s silky velvet-like tone. The fluid sounds of the key strokes are as sensual as a soft kiss on the forehead. The strength of Doba’s voice is both appealing and captivating; her unique voice will grab your attention and hold it tightly. Doba shows her versatility on “No Fool”, a fun Pop/Reggae infused track packed with loads of great energy. She alters her tone expressively between various octaves as her prominent voice seamlessly congeals with the rhythm. Other songs you’ll surely enjoy are “One Tune at a Time”, “Sand Woman” and “As Time Drags By”.
This album has been a true pleasure to listen to. Doba’s ability to allure you with her music is as amazing as her dynamic voice. Her ability to merge multiple genres of music shows in her sound. Just one listen could help you develop and expand your musical palette. Take my word for it.
