Scotland - Good Call
A set of two tunes - one penned by Kabantu Edinburgh-born violinist Katie Foster and one traditional, fused with Kabantu's take on Scottish music, including bowed banjo woven with intricate rhythmic decoration.
South Africa - Ulidzele
Ulidzele is a traditional song brought to Kabantu by their South African cellist, Abel Selaocoe, who is from a township near Johannesburg called Sebokeng. Ulidzele uses a blend of African vocal harmonies preceded by vibrant chanting and percussion to tell the story of a funeral celebrating a life, rather than mourning it. This song will feature on Kabantu's debut album, released in February 2018.
