Tanzanian musician Msafiri Zawose's album Uhamiaji is the coolest thing I've heard in a long while in any genre. Wow!

I'll be going to see Tony Allen (Fela Kuti's drummer in the '70s) on Friday.
His 'The source' was one of my favourite albums of past year. It'll be an Art Blakey tribute show.

I don’t usually like pop videos but this is a beauty.. Great dancing too..
It’s even better than the vid for Queens Bohemian Rhapsody (if you can imagine such a thing possible)

His debut international release Gulu City Anthems features 11 songs written and recorded between 2004 and 2015 was released on vinyl yesterday..
Also available via download since last year..
