Tonight’s #notyouraverage music review was produced by Parisian based music label, Nouvelle Ambiance (known for celebrating cultural & musical collaborations)
It merges Kenyan, Arabic & Egyptian culture & traditional musical percussion instruments, drums and vocals to create a 15-minute soundscape that is just dope.
The track ‘Mabomba dance’ took my soul on a cosmic journey, so hypnotic that my feet & body were charmed into a dalliance on an otherworldy dancefloor. The only thing missing was me wearing a goat fur Kondo headpiece. (Maybe not) 😀
STRANGE TRIVIA: the Kondo is part of the traditional Kenyan attire to don when dancing to the Nyatiti (plucked Kenyan lyre).
The entire EP ‘ Wolf Muller meets the Nile project’ is G.O.A.T. -it is music that is in a league of its own.
It was recorded in the Egyptian city of Aswan, by Jan Schulte (Wolf Müller & Bufiman) & Kenyan and Egyptian musicians Kasiva Mutua, Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno and Adel Mekha.
