SOMEWHERE SOUTH OF SOMALIA(the new album) Continuing his tradition of : live it, write about it, rap about it, Ithaka?s new action-adventure rap album, SOMEWHERE SOUTH OF SOMALIA, takes us straight outta the neighborhood and into the wilds of East Africa. Written on location during a two-month solo mission to Kenya and Tanzania, ITHAKA revisits his long explored topic of escapism.

"This is unusual territory for a rap record. It's definitely hiphop but not restricted by trying just to work only within

Ithaka has a great voice and his use of female vocalists
add a nice melodic but not formula flavor. Highly recommended."
