the kondi band | belle wahallah

the-kondi-band-belle-wahallah

The Kondi Band is blind piano player and singer Sorie Kondi from Sierra Leone with Rio-based producer Chief Boima. Boima saw an original video of Sorie which inspired him to get in touch and start a collaboration. The EP „Belle Wahallah“ forges a direct link between Techno born in the black cities of the American Midwest (where Boima grew up) and roots African music. Sorie Kondi may be playing an acoustic folk instrument from Sierra Leone, but he thinks about music as if he were a Techno producer. (Cover design by John Avanti)

The EP is set release for May 13rd 2016 on Strut Records/London. Pre-Order on iTunes or on Boomkat.
