BROADCITE MUSIC in collaboration with Saint Evo have decided to up the festive ante with the release of the MASHARIKI EP. Broadcite Music has described the EP as “simply deep and blissful sunshine energy music all in one package”.
MASHARIKI means “East” when translated to English, a narrative carried down this EP from the three tracks showcased, which are Kitropiki , Jango featuring Madigari and Timbuktu.
KITROPIKI is a Kiswahili word meaning “Tropical” and this musical work epitomizes the spiritual melancholic journey through the tropical world of the Equator.
JANGO on the other hand is an exemplar of the meeting of two cultures miles apart. Namibian Madigari brings his rich rasping vocals and wit to the beat, as well as taking us back to snippets of golden oldies through his lyrical prowess… a bipolar journey through the concrete jungle.
TIMBUKTU is a tale of legends and myths, ideally a narrative that embraces the legacy of the sub-Saharan trade cities of pre-colonial Africa. It celebrates archaic narratives pregnant with slivers of what our ancestors once were, Gods in men… it is a trip down ancestral memory lane.
