Their vision is to create new sunmusic by mixing traditional african instruments like kora, djembé, doundoun or kalimba with universal grandpianos, instrumental neosouljazzvibe and hiphop - inspired beats.
17 musicians from Guinea, Senegal, SouthAfrica and Switzerland were invited to perform on their debut record „freequency of da sun“, which is dedicated to all african people worldwide (BLM).
Among them Jazzpianist, Healer & BlueNoteRecords - Artist Nduduzo Makhathini from South Africa, who is currently the most celebrated Jazzmusician from Africa.
The songs talk about patience, healing, team spirit, peace, a new education for our kids and about the sun as a symbol of love.
Almost all compositions are based on melodic grooves of the two drummers. Westafrican mandingue meetin’ blackmusic....Free floating vibe music, deep, open and universal, mostly instrumental, sometimes with vocals and spoken words.
