Owiny Sigoma Band at the Harley - 23.05.16

Blending influences from Africa and Electronica Owiny Sigoma Band come in with their third album Nyanza. This project, made up of band Elmore Judd and Kenyan musicians, is a complex, constantly evolving, musical relationship now in its fifth year.

Their previous releases have been recorded in Kenya,

for their self-titled 2009 album, and in London with the second Power Punch LP. The group features Nyatiti master Joseph Nyamungu and Lou percussionist Charles Owoko, both from the Nyanza Province in Western Kenya, as well as London-based musicians Tom Skinner (drums), Jesse Hackett (vox/keys) and Louis Hackett (bass).

The band travelled to the Nyanza Province of Western Kenya - home of their two members Joseph Nyamungu and Charles Owoko - to explore the birthplace of Luo music. This inspired their new album Nyanza, which also takes influences from dub and techno. Arresting electronic grooves fit side by side with soft Lou singing and traditional Nyatiti music to create yet another pivotal moment in the turning cogs of this intoxicating, often surprising, soundclash.
