Mozambique/ Zimbabwe/Norway/Sweden: Monoswezi - "Loku U Muka" – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Monoswezi

Mixing traditional African melodies and the cool atmosphere of Scandinavian jazz, Monoswezi’s music is a prime example of how a truly intercontinental fusion should sound like.

Monoswezi has been releasing albums every two years like a clockwork, yet each time taking their sound a step further.

Their most recent one, called “Ja Ne”, significantly expands their sonic palette by adding new instruments, like the Indian harmonium, Malian ngoni and African-American banjo.

Combined with Monoswezi’s artistry, it results in a colorful yet cohesive set of songs with a groovy, organic vibe. Just listen to the wonderful “Loku U Muka.”
