Uhambo Luqala

This project brings together recordings made in collaboration with artists, choirs and community groups, from Soweto to the Eastern Cape, over several trips to South Africa. The recordings are blended with electronic beats inspired by the vibrant electronic music scenes in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and layered underneath electric guitar lines.
