This enchanting pairs' debut album, Calabash, is fresh off the press. Manatho Shumba Masani, Mbira keeper and seasoned musician, has captivated his own following of Mbira enthusiasts with his first album, Building Bridges with Mbira Chords. This time around he's added sentiment with words and has created another timeless body of work that honors the Mbira tradition of storytelling. His partnership with songwriter and vocalist, Rose Kush Bush aka Rose Phatma Kongolizamawi is building a bridge and connecting African traditional percussion with vocals that blend sounds of soul, hip-hop, and spoken word with ancient reverberations.
Rose, "The Ghetto Griot", offers stories of memories conjured from past, present, and yet to be born. Her unique ear and storytelling abilities will beckon you to listen closer as her voice reminds you that she, like the Mbira, is indeed a channel of the ancestral. Calabash is her first full length sound recording release.
Let the mbira, a traditional African Thumb piano indigenous to Zimbabwe take you through the inner minds eye as the lyrics and melodies invite you to journey to a land of wild imagination. While this musical couples' sound may be referred to as world music, Channel 7 is beyond the norm. This is organic sound, a meditative musical, heirloom of self expression. Breathe deep, be still, dance, stretch, sing along or clap your hands. Tune up, tune out, and tune in to CHANNEL SEVEN!
"The music is water, come, quench your thirst."
