In the mid-'70s, musician and songwriter Phil Arosa fled the apartheid of Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) to settle in the Netherlands and pursue his musical career under more mundane skies. With his partner Marga he started the band Zimba, which enjoyed a 10-year career of playing clubs around the country.During its active days Zimba released only one song, 'Baleka', which stayed under the radar back in 1983. This 12-inch contains not only the original recording of 'Baleka', but also two new versions courtesey of London's The Comet Is Coming and Blackjoy (Siwo) from Paris. This minimal and powerful mix of African rhythms with new wave vocals, and an irresistible mbira gimmick won't stay unnoticed this time around. And now get your ass over to that dancefloor
BCUC - Our Truth
Our Truth
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (Nyami Nyami)
21,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
First outing from French formation BCUC - Their “incantations” in Zulu, Sotho and English and their funky modulations extend over twenty minutes in a whirlwind of sound reminiscent of Fela’s Afrobeat. This record is very recommended! Like its elders, Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness (BCUC) sees its music as a hedonistic trance, but also as a weapon of political and spiritual liberation. Artistic heirs to Philip “Malombo” Tabane and Batsumi, they seek to give a contemporary voice to the ancestral traditions of indigenous peoples. Jazz sounds of 1970s and ‘80s productions have been replaced by hip-hop influences and a punk-rock energy. It all started about twelve years ago in a community centre workshop. The format of the band hasn’t changed much since that time, but its musical language has been greatly refined. While vocals and percussion have always driven their music, BCUC found its magic formula in 2013 when they folded a frenzied electric bass into the simple drum-and-vocals mix. And that’s the alchemy of “Africangungungu”, the name they’ve given to their “afro psychedelic” music. “Music for the people by the people with the people” – a people they refuse to box into one community, to circumscribe to one skin colour.
