Episode 1.4: Take Taj Kamal [REWIND]

As we take a brief hiatus, let's rewind, shall we?

Taj Kamal is an enigmatic, soft spoken, lyrical genius... and she's the reason Kenya started her record company in the first place.

Not only is this a story of music, but it's also a music experience. So sit back, put on your headphones, and enjoy the show...

Profile picture for Kayona Ebony Brown

Kayona Ebony Brown

Hailing from our nation’s capital, Kayona Ebony Brown is a multi-hyphenate storyteller who grew up in a home that nurtured her eccentricities and unexpected interests of a girl. Thus, she gives fuel to female-driven vehicles, emphasizing existential undertones, putting unusual or unpredictable women at the wheel.

Using drama to bake fresh narratives, her stories are always flavored with other genres—fantasy, sports, music—which gives her work with both TV and feature scripts a common thread: she makes female leads of color just as acceptably flawed and admirably defective as the straight white men we always find a way to love.

Rejecting the presumed path of a Washingtonian (government work) in favor of art, Kayona is the recipient of multiple awards for her writing and filmmaking, as she continues to build her career independently.
