NEW MUSIC|SURAJ WAWERE

Wawere is the debut single released by Kenyan house producer @surajforreal, Suraj Mandavia. A slab of progressive afro-house that conjures up visions of the vast vistas and precipitous drops of the Kenyan Rift Valley, it samples a Dholuo vocal riff from renowned Luo singer Olith Ratengo. This is a respectful blending of contemporary house music production and more traditional musical and cultural elements and is very much in line with Suraj’s ethos, looking to progress the Kenyan electronic music scene without forgetting where it is based.

In The Name Of Ali’s Radical Blackness

In The Name Of Ali’s Radical Blackness

In the name of Ali’s Radical Blackness Written by Isidore Noel   On Friday afternoon I had a conversation with a sister who is awakening from her white supremacy induced slumber. I spoke of race, segregation, dysfunctional integration and ancestral veneration. Of course I spoke about Muhammad Ali, the man I sometimes liked to call my last living icon. For how can one talk about those that waged the war against white supremacy without mentioning Ali? Hours later I learned that The Greatest was in his final hours of transitioning…
