East Africa meets East Kingston

Working with Switchstance Recordings, Nilotika have achieved a milestone in musical history: the first ever African Nyabingi recording, which took place at East African Records studio in Kampala, Uganda. The session was captured over two weeks, using local instruments and the full ensemble of around 15 people, including friends and family. The results are extraordinary.

Sophie Lukacs | Falling

An amazing blend between African instrumentals and Western singer-songwriter vocals

Sophie Lukacs’ debut single "Falling" is a hypnotic tune, backed by the guitar, the kora – and its fellow Malian instruments the calabash, five-string ngoni bass, and its three-string cousin, the djeli-ngoni – "Falling" features Lukacs' incantatory, almost spoken-word vocals
