New Release: Owiny Sigoma Band – ‘Tafsiri Sound’


Tafsiri Sound features remixes of three tracks from Owiny Sigoma Band’s self titled album that dropped this April. “Tafsiri” is the Swahili word for translation and interpretation in the linguistic and lyrical sense. As such, Quantic, Jesse Hackett, and Hello Skinny take us to new realms with their personal takes on “Doyoi Nyajo Nam,” “Margaret Okudo,” and “Owegi Owandho,” respectively.
