about

This Galactic songstress has done it again, but on her own creative terms! Debuting her solo EP "Rebirthed Above Ground", Navasha Daya is further establishing herself as a classic songwriter, producer and vocalist.

This EP offers soulful songs with a touch of jazz and world influences and is a natural transition from her compositions as front woman and co-founder of the band Fertile Ground. Absolutely stunning solo debut EP from world-renowned soul jazz vocalist Navasha Daya!

Recorded with total live instrumentation (with the exception of synth strings) by a host of remarkable musicians, Navasha Daya’s EP, “Rebirthed Above Ground” was written, composed, arranged, and produced by Navasha Daya herself.

From Indie Spirit by Stevie Robinson
Her first solo project starts with “Iwapele” meaning gentle character taken from the Holy African scripture of the Yoruba. A smooth groove that will have you swaying and rocking your neck (that’s right I said your neck) to the music. At first listen to “Prelude to a Kiss” I was filled with the joy, hearing this song. And it will surely be known as a classic. It’s that beautiful. It flows right into jazzy smooth flowing “Sweet Kiss. “Galactic Soul” tells Daya’s story it’s her anthem song. The EP ends with a heavy guitar rock number called “Life Windows” which has you rocking your head and singing out loud or at least that’s what it has me doing. This debut EP will leave you wanting more.

Intro:
When you kiss my lips
I feel so much bliss
I cannot contain myself
It’s you that I have missed
When you say my name
My heart can proclaim
That I can rejoice in joy
And I know you feel the same
Cause you feel me
You see me
You know me
You show me
That you love me
Everyday
You see me
You feel me
You know me
You show me
That you love me In
Everyway
And your kiss so sweet
I feel it down to my feet
My heart skips a beat
When you are near me
And your kiss And your kiss And your kiss
And your kiss And your kiss
And your kiss

Verse:
When you first came into my life
You were a young and tender boy
I see you again, a man with a grin
Offering to be a friend
In honor we moved
And spirit smiled upon me and you
You stood by side With no judgment, I healed with pride
Then you asked me to be your wife

Chorus:
Ooh Kiss La,la,la,la,la,la Kiss I walk on my way I feel love Fingers snapping Hands a clapping Lips amazing Smiles a gazing And I feel the bliss of a Sweet Kiss (repeat)

Life Windows
Lyrics & Music by Navasha Daya for Daya World Publishing (ASCAP) & Daya World, LLC

Verse 1:
Sitting out in nature and enjoying what I’m facing seeing God everywhere Enjoying what I’m feeling, feeling grounded in my being No worries or cares
(no cares) Fingers on my Japa and I’m chanting Hare Rama The sound is so sweet (la, la,la,la) Sitting in this place of joy and grace is where I wanna be

Chorus:
Life Windows See the life I’m living
Life Windows All the joy I’m feeling

Verse 2:
Sistah...
Looking in your eyes I see your mask is a disguise so you can hide your pain You say that you’re happy, but I noticed that it flipped when the doorbell rang
Your boyfriend at the door say he don’t want you no more cause he feels confused The pain in your heart is always there and it starts to feel like abuse

Chorus:
Life Windows See the life you’re living
Life Windows All the pain you’re feeling

Bridge:
When you see your reflection in the window And you’ll see that It’s me I’ll see my reflection in the window And I’ll see that’s it’s you
We are all reflections of each other By being gentle with each other We are being gentle with ourselves (yeah)

(Guitar Solo)

Chorus:
Life Windows See the life you’re living Life Windows All the joy you’re feeling Life Windows See the life I’m living Life Windows All the joy I’m feeling
(Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, ho) repeat
(Hey ee yey, hey ee yey ee yey) repeat
