London label Whaever Records are set to release Gùndo Fara, the debut EP by Zantogola later this month.
Over four tracks, Zantogola concocts a melting pot of traditional African-percussions rhythms with brass, voices, guitars, balafons and ngonis to create contemporary, reflective, joyous and highly danceable songs.
The forthcoming EP is an introduction to an eleven track album set for release in the spring of 2019.
The EP title Gùndo Fara means “secret revealed” in Bambara, one of the most widely spoken languages in French-speaking West Africa.
Today, we share the highly infectious opening track ‘Seli’ for your listening pleasure.
