Columbus, OH – Poetess Naki Akrobettoe of the Ikan Dynasty will release her second album “A Timeless Miracle” on Tuesday, December 16, 2014. The dynamic Diaspora performing artist, granddaughter of Ghanaian royalty and an American coal miner, has teamed up with Columbus’ best producers, musicians, and singers to create one of this year’s best works of art. The album will be available for purchase on iTunes. Pre-purchase orders can be made at www.NakiSpeaks.com.

The album is a beautiful synergy of spoken word and improvisational jazz. Musicians Cedric Easton, Brandon Chapman, Carlton Pope, Christopher Brown, and Danny Aguiar were inspired by just a few lines of each poem and created a medley of sound based on how those lines made them feel. Vocalist Renee Dion and emerging poet Cynthia Amoah were equally inspired and added their vocal interpretation to the album.

Each line, each sound is a meditation of life, growth and humanity – all of which Naki believes embodies a timeless miracle. “The music that you hear is a reflection of the moments we lived while creating it,” says Cedric Easton, one of the albums composers. Every artists’ personal connection with the poems are woven together to tell intimate tales of life.

“A Timeless Miracle” is Naki’s way of leaving a message of hope to her three beautiful children and to the artist in all of her listeners. “I want my children to know that anything they aspire to accomplish in life can be achieved as long as they stay true to themselves, their visions and dreams,” Naki says. “My hope with this project is to spread a dose of love through my creativity and to allow people an up close and personal account of my creative process.”
