This great Mbaqanga tune is about two lovers calling each other for warmth in the bitterly cold winter weather. Irene is joined here by the veteran groaner Mazambane of Abafana Baseqhudeni and Abafana Besishingishane fame, marking their first recording together in 40 years!
Across these songs, Ethiopian jazz, African psychedelic rock and funk, Sudanese dance rhythms, and Tuaregi grooves mingle with the jazz and folk traditions of the Americas. Bandcamp Album of the Day Mar 19, 2019
