I know that this has been the buzz of the Internets for a while but I just found about Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit’s free download of his new album “Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit are The Very Best”.
His sound defies description but I like – best way in which I can describe it afro-vocal house meets electronica meets kwaito meets spoken word (yes, its quite a mouthful).
There is an alternate download location at this link on GreenOwl.
Kamau’s blog also has a great story about an art installation done in Kibera. Kamau’s blog is a must read.
In other news, BongoCelebrity has a big story ( in Swahili ) on the disbandment(??) of DDC Mlimani Park Orchestra that you can find here. Jeff, can we get a translation please? If this indeed has happened, it is terrible news.
