    On her rootsy, soulful 'Songs Of An Unknown Tongue' album, Zara McFarlane has collaborated with producers Kwake Bass and Wu-Lu - while each track has a story of its own, the album overall speaks not only to Jamaican folk histories but to contemporary issues of empire, colonialism, race and identity.
