It had been a successful, if tumultuous, ride for Alynda Segarra, who’s been spreading a new kind of roots- conscious folk music across the country from her adopted hometown of New Orleans. As far as the Bronx native had come with her band, Hurray For the Riff Raff, there was still a missing link to her story. “The more I toured, ending up in the middle of nowhere bars from Texas to Tennessee,” said Segarra, “I just started feeling more and more like, I don’t belong here, I gotta get back to my people, you know?”

To find her way back home, Segarra became the willing vessel for a character she calls ‘The Navigator’, from which her new album takes its name. She describes ‘The Navigator’, AKA Navita Milagros Negrón, as “this girl who grows up in a city that’s like New York, who’s a street kid, like me when I was little, that has a special place in the history of her people.” Through ‘The Navigator’ the listener hears an ambitiously interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul that finally realized she needed to connect with and honour her ancestors.

‘The Navigator’ was produced by Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Devendra Banhart) and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in NYC and Panoramic House in California. The album features percussionists Juan-Carlos Chaurand, Gregory Rogove (Rodrigo Amarante), a trio of Bomba drummers and Doo Wop singers from New Jersey.
