HHY & The Kampala Unit is the project initiated by musician and artist Jonathan Saldanha (HHY & The Macumbas) during his Nyege Nyege residency. According to the press release, it is a futuristic exploration of a fresh, yet submerse territory in music mixing up dub, techno, traditional drumming and elements of trance over ghostly and unnerving cinematic passages.
A collaborative venture featuring visionary Saldanha on electronics and production, fierce trumpet player and ghetto activist Florence Lugemwa joined by percussionist Omutaba on hybrid drums plus the special appearance of the Kampala Prison Brass Band. Lithium Blast is the debut album which will be out on October 22nd via Nyege Nyege. Check the title-track below.
