REMITTANCES- takes the listener on an intimate journey through the American landscape from the perspective of a working class immigrant disillusioned by the American dream. With guest appearances by comrades and friends, verses rap stars and tastemakers, REMITTANCES reflects Nomi’s nomadic life-story that represents Minneapolis, Brooklyn, San Francisco and the Philippines. Remittances balances between subtle social commentary, to outright blood knuckle rage.
Over the past few years lead-vocalist Nomi has created an impressive resume releasing albums with the groups Oddjobs and Kill the Vultures. His music has been featured in Urb Magazine, Blow Up (Italy), Mixer, Yellow Rat Bastard, Time Out NY, SF Weekly, etc. Nomi has done extensive touring with groups like De La Soul, Atmosphere, Lyrics Born, Dj Shadow and Brother Ali. With a strong social-political analysis, Nomi is also committed to building power in the Filipino community working as a community organizer at the Filipino Community Center in the Excelsior District of SF.
