Life Choices is the title – absolutely not random – of Nahoti’s debut album, an artistic project born in 2016 from the encounter of Mercy Sunday with Ermanno Figura, on stage Herman Ezscò. The album contains six unplugged songs performed with guitar and voice, with a sound that wisely combines american blues and afro-soul. The lyrics, in English, often explore themes related to the singer’s life, like Am talking about freedom, where Mercy take on the sadly present subject of feminicide. They released, simultaneously to the album, the elegant black and white videoclip of Took me back directed by Laura Baglieri. The album has been entirely produced by Herman Eszcò in collaboration with Danilo Pao – who also handled mixing and mastering – and Fernando Alba from Maqueta Records.
Nahoti (Mercy Sunday) is a very young African girl who left her country to reach Sicily, Italy to find shelter inside the welcome facilities. She began writing her first songs after meeting with Ermanno Figura, guitarist and bluesman of the highest repute, who also collaborated several times with Roberto Ciotti.
