I’ve known about the Owiny Sigoma Band for a while now, thanks to Gilles Peterson. Sometime in 2009 a collective of London-based musicians travelled to Nairobi to collaborate with local musicians –where a jam session took place, which bore a fresh and unique sound. Thus, the fruits of these sessions became the Owiny Sigoma Band’s self –title album which releases May 2nd in the UK and May 3rd in the states on the Brownswood Recordings label.
So, when I stumbled upon the Theo Parrish remix of the song “Wires”, released this past weekend as a Record Store Day exclusive ( I hope you guys supported your local Record Stores!!) I was thoroughly pleased. So, dancers and music lovers alike I’m sure this song will get your mojo rising.
