Description

Woodburner is proud to present:

Bamako Overground "The Swallow's Tale" Single Launch

Born in the inspired mind of London’s own Malian rhythm buff Hans Sutton, Bamako Overground have been busy forging a new sound. The trio are irresistibly seduced by the music of West Africa, blending its influences overtly and covertly with their own carefully-selected flavours to settle into dance grooves and desert-inspired blues.

Hans plays his distinctive hybrid drum kit which has previously brought Mandé styles to artists such as Nick Mulvey and Cocos Lovers, while at his flanks stand the sparkling guitar of Yaaba Funk co-founder Tobias Sturmer and the hypnotic, heavy bass of Woodburner impresario Theo Bard.

Deep and soulful rhythms meet soaring melodies, while smooth three-part vocal harmonies spin allegories in Bamanakan and English to complete a brew that’s compelling and utterly unique.

Their new single "The Swallow's Tale" will be released on Wormfood Records.

Muntu Valdo

Muntu says: "My passion is African history; it’s past glory, present fragility and diverse riches. My ambition is to increase awareness, enlighten, empower people and invoke a positive future for Africa with the rest of the world. My music is a result of all of this, rooted in the blues, mixing African traditions with striking modernity and technical mastery."

The Cameroonian is indeed a master and his performance will be a rare treat for those present to experience his music.
