The new 12'' release from Nyami Nyami records teams up mbira maestro Jacob Mafuleni from Zimbabwe and electro-funk producer Gary Gritness from France, who released a series of 12'' on Clone records in 2015 and collaborated with Orlando Voorn, Dam-Funk or Los Hemanos. Tip!!
Jacob Mafuleni was Chiwoniso's sideman on vocals and mbira on the label's acclaimed first release 'Zvichapera'. He recorded two new tracks in Harare with his wife Martha Thom on vocals and the traditional percussion ocho. Gary Gritness added 808 rhythms and sounds keeping the natural flow of the songs without cutting or sampling the original music. He intuitively produced the talent of Jacob's mbira ceremonies rhythmic patterns on his TR 808 drum machine.
This natural and respectful collaboration resulted in two already classic 'afro techno' tracks Atuka Mondhoro 808 and Chiconi 808.
