Who Sent You? is an expansive, meditative follow-up to Irreversible Entanglements’ explosive 2017 debut. Camae Ayewa leads the quintet through searing lyrics of black survival and power, and calls forth liberating black futures. On “The Code Noir/Amina,” she explores the history of black subjugation and intergenerational trauma, and asks, “At what point do we stand up? At what point do we give a shit?” Saxophonist Keir Neuringer and trumpeter Aquiles Navarro’s sinewy horns answer her call-to-action, accelerated by drummer Tcheser Holmes’ feverish percussion.
