Boomkat Product Review:
Kenyan and Egyptian musicians meets Düsseldorf’s downtempo expert Jan Schulte on a swingeing, grubbing percussive tip nodding to classic Wally Badarou and cosmic disco vibings
Up top on ‘Mabomba Dance’ they set sights on the horizon for a 15 minute trek hustling Kasiva Mutua’s percussion with acidic synth wiggle and Ahmed Omar’s panting vocal, before a creamy breakdown takes them into a lusher 2nd half lit up with arcing synth chorales.
Down under, they contract to a nattier groove built from Jaw Harp and loose drums and framing a low key vocal from Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno in ‘Ruoth Radido (Nyangile)’, before traditional Kenyan strings appear on the dusty shuffler ‘Moso Radido Wuod Ndege (Nyatiti)’, and they wrap up with the tightest mesh of clipped clave rhythms and Adel Mekha’s balmy, plangent Arabic vox.
