Boomkat Product Review:
Nyege Nyege Tapes is a Kampala based label exploring, producing and releasing outsider music from East Africa as well as showcasing international collaborations. For its first batch of releases the label is showcasing the electro-achoi sound coming from Northern Uganda, a compilation of the new beats scene from Dar Es Salaam Tanzania, and the first studio album of Uganda's legendary thumb piano player Ekuka, plus a few other surprises from Congo DRC and South Sudan.
The third releases on the label is the best of the batch; the first-ever international release by Otim Alpha. It features 11 fast-paced Electro Acholi versions of Larakaraka wedding songs from Uganda. Energy crew, your time!
