Wolf Muller meets the Nile-Nouvelle Ambience
Produced by Parisian based music label, Nouvelle Ambiance (known for celebrating cultural & musical collaborations)
It merges Kenyan, Arabic & Egyptian culture & traditional musical percussion instruments, drums and vocals to create a 15-minute soundscape that is just dope.
The track ‘Mabomba dance’ took my soul on a cosmic journey, so hypnotic that my feet & body were charmed into a dalliance on an otherworldy dancefloor. The only thing missing was me wearing a goat fur Kondo headpiece.
STRANGE TRIVIA: the Kondo is part of the traditional Kenyan attire to don when dancing to the Nyatiti (plucked Kenyan lyre).
The entire EP ‘ Wolf Muller meets the Nile project’ Goat-it is music that is in a league of its own.
It was recorded in the Egyptian city of Aswan, by Jan Schulte (Wolf Müller & Bufiman) & Kenyan and Egyptian musicians Kasiva Mutua, Rapasa Nyatrapasa Otieno and Adel Mekha.
