I AM BY ATHIENO

Al­bum of the Month

Healthy Woman - - HEALTHY LIFE -

Let’s just get it out from the on­set: one small lie leads to big­ger lies. "When we lie for per­sonal gain, our amyg­dala – a part of the brain as­so­ci­ated with emo­tion – pro­duces a neg­a­tive feel­ing that lim­its the ex­tent to which we are pre­pared to lie,” says Dr Tali Sharot, who took part in a study show­ing how ly­ing oc­curs in the brain. He adds, "This re­sponse fades as we con­tinue to lie, and the more it falls the big­ger our lies be­come. This may lead to a 'slip­pery slope' where small acts of dis­hon­esty es­ca­late into more sig­nif­i­cant lies.” PER­FORM­ING SINGER/ SONG­WRITER, PI­ANIST, MU­SIC PRO­DUCER AND AU­DIO EN­GI­NEER… ATHIENO DOES IT ALL, AND IN HER DE­BUT AL­BUM, SHE DEFTLY CRE­ATES AN AFRICANINFUSED UR­BAN AL­BUM (THE SOUNDS ARE IN­FLU­ENCED BY R&B, JAZZ, FUNK, HIP-HOP, GOSPEL AND AFRICAN SOUNDS). WANT TO KICK BACK AF­TER A LONG DAY? I AM WILL TAKE YOU THERE.

Once a liar, al­ways a liar?
