ALKEBULAN translates to ‘Mother of Mankind’ or ‘Garden of Eden’. It is believed by many to be the ancient and indigenous name of Africa prior to its colonization. The album is a celebration of homecoming and connection with the ancestors. Matt B touches on his ancestral roots, his feelings of visiting the Motherland for the first time, and shares some indigenous stories from the continent. ALKEBULAN features sonic elements from different countries in Africa like Namibia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Nigeria, and more... but with Matt’s own special twist. All of the album's visuals were directed by Angela V. Benson and filmed throughout the continent of Africa.
