REPRESS ALERT! Since racking up serious play from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Hunee, Jon K and more last year this release quickly flew. Don't expect this time around will be much different... cop now.
A collection of killer dancefloor curveballs from Kampala, Uganda, performed and composed by the traditional mataali drum and vocal troupe Mubashira Mataali Group (pron: moo-ba-shee-ra). Esoteric and unusual although fantastically joyous to listen and dance to, the unbelievably tight multitude of percussionists provide the perfect backdrop for musician-come-filmstar Sulaiman Sulait to deliver his entrancing vocal performance with a strong islamic message at the heart.
PS: Remember you can pay as you feel. This one is particularly important as proceeds go back to Uganda and enable all involved to keep on producing this brilliant yet under represented music.
