Everything about this track is simply magic.
Nana Adjoa has a voice that can melt hearts and we are happy that she returns with ‘Throw Stones’. The talented Dutch singer and songwriter joined her first band as a teenager, choosing to play bass because, “every other instrument had been claimed”. It was a lucky twist of fate, unbeknown to the musician, her mother had once been the bassist in a Ghanaian Highlife band and happened to have her instrument. Accepted to study jazz (electric bass and double bass) at the prestigious Amsterdam Conservatory, Nana traded the restrictions of a structured curriculum for the free-flow of her own compositions.
Talking about the meaning behind ‘Throw Stones’ Nana explains, “ is about me calming myself down in difficult times. To feel, regroup, and reflect. If you need that right now, to feel it to embrace it and slowly heal, you can listen to this song and count to 10. You don’t always have to be ‘on’, you are allowed to take time, to rest and come back feeling refreshed, better and stronger. I hope this song gives you pause, time to breathe…”
