Review

There's been a fair amount of hype around this unlikely collaboration between Zimbabwean mbira maestro Jacob Mafuleni and French electrofunk producer Gary Gritness. In truth, the hype is deserved. Offering a thoroughly fresh tale on traditional shona music, the album effortlessly blends percussion and vocals from Mafuleni and wife Martha Thorn with the vibrant synthesizers and on-point drum machine programming of Gritness. It's a formula that arguably shouldn't work, but in reality results in a string of memorable moments. For proof, check the near D&B tempo brilliance of "Mukuru", the intricate melodies, slipped beats and raw analogue bass of closer "Nyama Lekougoctha" and the sublime shona-electro fusion of opener "Mayariria".
