The song Used to Live is featured on Y n' Amai's album: AfroSoul Volume II: MaZai.
The song ‘Used to Live’ is a journey through African diasporic ancestral memory. The song invokes a distant past where the intimate, loving connection with the natural world provide grounding ...before one is carried away by the voice of unknown spirits that draw you in… and then eventually allow you to “fly away!” The song reminds us to listen to the voices of our ancestors so that they may guide us toward living in greater balance with the earth again.


Amai Kuda and Y Josephine are singer/songwriters, percussionists, community activists and educators who believe in the power of music to heal and change the world. The two first came together for a tour in the spring of 2013 and have since developed their sound while performing at venues like Harbourfront, The Rivoli, The Garrison, and festivals such as Luminato, Kultrun, Big on Bloor and Small World Music Festival. 'Y n' Amai' have also given workshops on music, decolonization, African cultures and percussion at public schools, Universities, libraries and community centres throughout Southern Ontario, in the Caribbean and Europe.

Their latest release, AfroSoul Volume II: MaZai, has been called "earthy and rootsy and good for your ears" by CBC's Errol Nazareth, and in 2015 they were selected as one of the ‘101 Standout Artists’ during the nationwide CBC Searchlight competition. More recently, the duo collaborated with M1 of the legendary hip-hop duo Dead Prez on a call-to-action song called “We Can Do It.”
