OWINY SIGOMA BAND (UK/KE)

Saturday 07.07.12 - 14:00 - Cosmopol

The traditional songs of Kenya are given a gleam of today’s London with Owiny Sigoma Band.

In 2009, a group of London-based lads (their resumé includes the art-funk band Elmore Judd and Gorillaz) went to Nairobi to jam with the local musicians, originating in the traditions of the Luo people. The result was so appealing and funky that the influential world music pusher, DJ and radio host Gilles Peterson signed the band.

The focal point of the music is a special Kenyan harp called the nyatiti. The English musicians spar attentively, humbly and instinctively with the Africans’ hypnotic music.

Label: Brownswood / import
