chantae cann da da n da

Music has certain healing qualities that aren’t obtained from dark, amber bottles or gelatin covered tablets.  It has the ability to awaken senses and stir up joy in one’s life.  There are songs with the full intent and purpose to generate smiles and elicit happiness within.  This new joint from Atlanta’s Chantae Cann is happiness personified.  “Da Da ‘N Da” makes you feel like dancing wherever you stand, singing to your lover, smiling at scowling faces and hugging yourself.  With musical arrangements by the funky jazz band Snarky Puppy, grooving is inevitable.  So, groove on and be happy!  Be sure to cop her upcoming album, Journey to Golden, on 7/21.


First heard over at Okayplayer, this instrumental version of one of my all time favorite tracks made my heart flutter. I mean, I can feel the love all over this cover.
