Here is the debut album from the sensational live act Dekula Band. Centered around the legendary guitar player Dekula Kahanga (who was in the leading dance orchestra in Tanzania during the 70s and 80s: Orchestra Maquis Original) , this African band (based in Sweden) have been a very popular live band for the last years. Whether it's been at one of their monthly gigs at the not so glamorous club Lilla Wien in Stockholm or at bigger venues at Stockholm Jazz Festival.
Dekula Kahanga and the singer Gaby are both from Congo and with the other members coming from Kenya, Uganda, Senegal and Sweden they all bring their special influences to the infectous and hypnotic style of soukous that they have refined over the years.
And now in 2019 they have finally been into a recording studio with Sing a song fighters Karl Jonas to document some of their magic. These six tracks are bursting with energy, playfulness and grace from a unique band.
For the release party concert they will play at the great Afro festival Face Z in Geneva, Switzerland with legendary Stella Chiwise, Tallawit Timboctou and many more. This album is totally recommended!!
