Congolese, British singer-songwriter Blue Saint, releases an emotive overflowing story that explores the experiences of refugees (what it means to be displaced from one’s home, finding yourself being adopted to a new one and having to navigate and adapt to one’s new environment whilst simultaneously trying to make sense the new reality one has found themselves in).
