Owiny Sigoma Band – Tafsiri Sound 12″

16 Jun

Tafsiri is the Swahili (Kenyan lingua franca) word for translation and interpretation in the linguistic and lyrical sense. Sauntering down the trail blazed by Theo Parrish – who reworked ‘Wires’ with signature swagger – is another kindred spirit and Worldwide heavyweight – Quantic – who nudges ‘Doyoi Nyajo Nam’ firmly, but sensitively, towards club dancefloors via a monstrous Afro-funky groove packing XXL drums and rib-rattling bass. The original Owiny jam has become a Worldwide favourite… Quantic’s rerub ups its status to “Summer Festival Anthem”.

The flip sees Owiny Sigoma Band co-founders Jesse Hackett (keys) and Tom Skinner (drums) tweaking ‘Margaret Okudo’ and ‘Owegi Owandho’ respectively: Jesse flipping 80s drum machine hits, heavily dubbed vocals and FX on the former to forge a delightfully loose-fitting, percussive groove; whilst Skinner transforms Joseph Nyamungu’s virtuoso nyatiti/vocal solo into a gloriously skittery freeform bass jam.

Out on Brownswood Recordings July 11, 2011! Tune in below..
