Acapella-tastic freestyle from Sarah Kanan

Listening to artists perform acapella can often be like watching a horror film with the sound down: it's still the same person only without any real melody the whole thing falls spectacularly flat. Dub vocalist Sarah Kanan however faces no such worry, an almost classical ring to her voice carrying those rhythmic reggae twangs and gender equality lyrics in an intriguing way that I kinda prefer more than with the instrumental behind. Of course she also has a funked-up liquid new tune The Lesson on SoundCloud with a really great atmospheric dub. Julie Andrews meets Ms. Dynamite - keep your eye on this one.
