Ruby Mountain honors ancestors through new sonic styles
Ruby Mountain is an eclectic singer-songwriter and producer from Oakland. She grew up performing traditional Afghan songs with her father while also experiencing all of the Soul, R&B and Hip Hop that the Bay Area had to offer.
"This idea of connecting to music goes down my lineage, and so for me, I know that I'm just in the next phase of completing it or expanding it."
Combining elements from field recordings and electronic drum machines, her latest project Full Moon is a series of songs that she recorded on location during full moon cycles throughout last year.
For this edition of Bay Area Beats, Ruby talks about what inspired it.
