Poised to begin a European tour supporting Thom Yorkeâ€™s Atoms For Peace project, the Owiny Sigoma Band [Oh-wee-nee Sig-oh-mah] prepare to release â€˜Harpoon Landâ€™ from their sophomore album ‘Power Punch’. The rubs come from within the Owiny family… via drummer Tom Skinner aka Hello Skinny and Jesse Hackett (Blludd Relations / Elmore Judd). One part bumpy techno, one part funereal slo-mo folk…
Spinning on its London-Nairobi axis, the MOBO-nominated group continue to redefine universal, artistic and cultural exchange blending traditional Kenya nyatiti and Luo music with Western songwriting and production techniques. ‘Power Punch’, as its title suggests, is a confident, radiant, album packed with stirring, sometimes downright frisky jams.
