Bankulli & Töme pay tribute to music legend Sound Sultan on “Journey Back Home”


To honor the legendary singer-songwriter Sound Sultan, respected A&R, songwriter, and singer Bankulli has collaborated with Canadian-Nigerian afro-fusion singer Töme to release a body of work that pays homage to his personality and far-reaching impact on the growth of Nigerian and African music.

“Journey Back Home” is a succinct acknowledgment that Sound Sultan has ascended to be with the elders and is now in a better place, free of earthly concerns.

Töme rides the minimalist wave of the instrumental to situate her own path in the journey narrated by Sound Sultan all those years ago, while Bankulli provides a sturdy base to balance her wanderlust against.

“Journey Back Home” is produced by the celebrated production duo, Legendury Beatz, and is spiced by harmonious horns that pay tribute to afrobeat, a major influence on Sound Sultan.

In the spirit of the project being a homage to Sound Sultan, all proceeds from this project will be donated to his family and estate.
