Singer and storyteller Germana Stella La Sorsa launched her new album Primary Colours on January 26th. Full of rich and diverse influences, you can hear flavours of Jeff Buckley, Gretchen Parlato and even Bobby McFerrin within the seven original compositions. This is the second album from Germana after her debut album Vapour released in 2021 and its release is highly anticipated. With the album launch and having just become a mother, there is much to explore!
