‘When rain falls, the beans grow’. Mvula Mandondo presents an original concoction of Tanzanian village roots, urban rumba and Afro-Caribbean influences, blending traditional and modern instruments. Saidi Kanda’s vocal virtuosity accompanied by commanding guitar-driven rhythms will make you move. Sit back, relax and let strings, thumb piano and harmonies wash over you like tropical rain, if you can sit still. Spanning a versatile range of musical styles this album holds a few surprises with new sounds and blends you have never heard before. Prepare to be ambushed!
