SUKU - Your Life is Your Poem (2016) A sound painter, a storyteller, a musical inventor. The expressive singer and multi-instrumentalist Nils Kercher is all of these. He draws the musical language for his stories from the traditions of West Africa and from the introspective, meditative atmosphere of the Nordic landscape. The result of these encounters is SUKU, his third album - an awesome, harmonious, and unique piece of musical drama in which you feel all elements breathe.
