Sharaf Band | Kadeed Badanaa Naftaydani

My Life is Full of Tribulations

This fascinating compilation gathers recordings from the Horn of Africa spanning several decades, including pop songs as well as tunes recorded for theatrical plays. Many of the recordings were made in Mogadishu, Hargeisa, or Djibouti. Sharaf Band's "Kadeed Badanaa Naftaydani" was recorded in the 1980s, but it has a groove similar to what trip-hop producers like Massive Attack would be doing.

A review of Abudebi Zonjon's 'I've Decided'

What the artist intends to achieve with their music is entirely up to them. It is probable that Abudebi Zonjon set out with the song ‘I’ve Decided’ to transport us to a human condition which we are all too familiar with, especially in this present time; the issue of LOVE.
