YATTA is a Sierra Leonean-American multidisciplinary artist based in New York and a resident of the Silent Barn art space. Digipoet and healer. An explorer of cultural, emotional, and identity history through incantations born out of loop pedal drones and folk acoustics. "When I began writing these songs, I was back in the South for my namesake's funeral. Many of the samples within the EP come from recordings of burial hymnals and conversations that I had during my trip. The making of this album served as heart balm. It was my way of mourning and trying to construct meaning from family. It helped me ground myself in who I am, what I have to offer, what the matriarchs in my family have offered, and who they are guiding me to be after their passing.
