After more than 4 years of refining his approach, Makaya McCraven puts forth an ambitious new work – Universal Beings – a culmination of concepts conceived by his first album (In The Moment, 2015), and his most elegant & articulated work yet.

Universal Beings projects an all-encompassing message of unity, peace & power by embracing transcendence in all its expressions.
