New Music: Sasa Zola

Hailing from Bristol (England), Sasa Zola is a talent in many ways. The Italo Senegalese artist is not only a singer and songwriter, but also a model and an ex pro windsurfer.

Written as an anthem for those who struggle to make themselves heard, ‘What If’ blends powerful lyricism into a richly dark pop production that feels intensely emotive yet still easy to connect with.

“This song is for all those who have a voice but have not been able to express themselves freely. We hid in fear, in anger, in the shadow of a society that has never accepted us. Not anymore. Our time has come. Let us be.”

Quoting Martin Luther King in ‘I Have a Dream’ speech from 1963, ‘Let Freedom Ring’.
