Since racking up serious play from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Hunee, Jon K and more last year this release quickly flew. Don't expect this time around will be much different... cop now. 

A collection of killer dancefloor curveballs from Kampala, Uganda, performed and composed by the traditional mataali drum and vocal troupe Mubashira Mataali Group (pron: moo-ba-shee-ra). Esoteric and unusual although fantastically joyous to listen and dance to, the unbelievably tight multitude of percussionists provide the perfect backdrop for musician-come-filmstar Sulaiman Sulait to deliver his entrancing vocal performance with a strong islamic message at the heart.

Tracklisting: 
Emaali Ya Bamulekwa (Orphan's Property)
Kulika Hijja (Welcome Back From The Holy Pilgrimage)
Mutume Nabbi (Prophet Muhamad)
Obufumbo Bwa Kati (Today's Marriage) pt. 1
