When you’ve followed an artist long enough, you can’t help feeling a sense of pride with each album release. I’ve been a fan of Amina Shareef Ali for <a href="">almost ten years</a> and it’s a thrill to see (or, I guess, hear) how she’s blossomed on her latest, <em>In The Dark (Awake Of Course), Vol. 2</em>. A follow-up to her 2021 album, <em>Vol. 2</em> is more expansive, even more gut-wrenching, but also confidently, authentically, Amina.
