About this project

Imani Uzuri invites you to join her beautiful journey to manifest her NEW album "The Gypsy Diaries", a lyrical spiritual soundscape.

the dream~

My name is Imani Uzuri. I am excitedly preparing to record my NEW album "The Gypsy Diaries". I grew up in a small town in rural North Carolina where I ran barefoot in dirt fields, dreamed underneath pecan trees and drank water from the well. Today I travel around the world to many places from Morocco to Moscow exploring world cultures, sharing music and falling in love with the many beautiful people I meet along the way. My nomadic wanderings have inspired the music for this new album "The Gypsy Diaries". I'm extremely happy to be able to share it with you all soon! Thank you everyone for your beautiful support!! Thank you for joining me on the journey! ♥

the journey ~

For 58 days (1392 hours) I will be campaigning on Kickstarter to raise the much needed funds to record, mix, master and produce my new album "The Gypsy Diaries".  I am asking for your help,prayers,light,well wishes and pledges to help me bring my new music to you and the world.

I bow a deep bow of gratitude and immense thanks for your gorgeous, inspiring, and generous gifts of support! Namaste and radiant love to each of you.

You truly are "so beautiful"!
