It’s exactly one year ago that the first song from USUSU was released! Artists from the UK, Iceland and Sierra Leone started their journey together in November 2018, when 17 of them met up in Sierra Leone during the Music Writing Week. This event was followed by the Freetown Music Festival in March 2019, and resulted in the album Volume #1 being released on the 6th of December 2019. Listen to the album on Spotify!
