Having played at Nyege Nyege Festival in Uganda as well as the legendary Kilifi New Year Festival (now known as Beneath the Baobabs) to kick off an extensive tour in the first half of 2020, their plans were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new album will be released in Spring 2024 on Altin Village & Mine and will have contributions by sound artist KMRU and Angel Bat Dawid on bass clarinet expand the duo’s sonic palette which draws on the dodo music of the Luo people and enriches it with percussive, melodic, and occasionally electronic means.
