MSAFIRI @ WOMAD

It’s always a real thrill when artists we are working with at Santuri end up in the spotlight. It happened last year when DJ Rachael made the WOMEX 2016 selection. Since then her career has risen and so have her airmiles!

With Msafiri, we’re hoping this extra love at WOMAD, brings some energy to his new album release on 1st September. It’s been a real mission of passion from Bagamoyo in Tanzania to London – back and forth a few times, the energies of Sam Jones of Soundthread on the production and Pete Buckingham of On The Corner Records, lots of time from our own David Tinning, none of which could have been possible without the backing or Pro Helvitia. More about the project here. The album ‘Uhamiaji’ will be coming out on the 01.09.17 but you can pre-order a copy from Soundway now.

We just wanted to share these lovely pictures taken at WOMAD of Msafiri by Eric Hobson
