Huge catchy choruses, and uplifting vibes a plenty, we’re sure that Tasha will bring the sun out, and have you dancing as well. Keeping you dancing, we’ll have the also ridiculously catchy sounds of BLESSING MAGORE. We recently did a session with Blessing, and since we recorded it, the entire Nusic team have been dancing around, talking about a “love revolution.” He made us feel the love, we’re sure he’ll make you feel it too!
