Vumbi Dekula

Kahanga ”Vumbi” Dekula växte upp i östra Kongo Kinshasa. Inspirerad av Docteur Nico och andra pionjärer inom soukus lärde han sig fingerplocka intrikata figurer på gitarr, och flyttade så småningom till Tanzania där karriären tog fart tillsammans med Orchestra Maquis. För mer än trettio år sedan kom Vumbi till Stockholm, där han började uppträda med Ahmadu Jah och Highlife Orchestra och så småningom grundade sitt egen grupp, Dekula Band. Sedan många år har Stockholmspubliken kunnat njuta av deras avslappnat virtuosa gitarrarpeggion och rullande rytmer på Little Nairobi, en klubb som huserar inuti Södra station.

Parallellt med Dekula band har Vumbi gjort mängder av soloinspelningar, och det är några av dem som nu har samlats på albumet Congo Guitar, utgiven av labeln Sing a Song Fighter, som drivs av Karl Jonas Winqvist (Wau Wau Collectif och First Floor Power). I låtar som Zanzibar, Kinshasa & Vällingby bjuds lyssnaren på en glimrande instrumental drömsoukous, där lager av gitarrer sjunger som i en sorts flerstämmiga call-and-responskörer.


Florence Adooni

Kanske har du sett henne på scen med Alogte Oho's Sounds of Joy? Eller hört henne i samarbeten med Guy One eller med Jimi Tenor. Florence Adooni har redan gjort imponerande avtryck som en vital del av Ghanas frafra-gospelscen, och det innan hon började uppträda under eget namn.

När debutsingeln släpptes satte den västafrikanska dansgolv i gungning – såväl som europeiska, och snart var hon signad till den tyska labeln Philophon. Frafra-gospel är namnet på en traditionell kyrkomusik från norra Ghana med euforisk körsång och rytmer i centrum. Florence Adooni har kallats genrens nya drottning, men denna unga artist är för mycket av en nyskapare för att känna sig hemma i bara ett musikaliskt fack.

I låtar som Mam Pe'ela Su'ure tar hon genrens melodiska vokabulär till nästa nivå och låter rytmerna koka över av dansant hetta. Uppbackad av ett megasoulfullt sjumannaband skapar Florence Adooni ett tätt sound där också highlife och afrobeat kan skönjas. Briljanta gitarrmelodier trängs med brassattacker över en snortight rytmsektion.

Vumbi Dekula

Kahanga "Vumbi" Dekula grew up in eastern Congo Kinshasa. Inspired by Docteur Nico and other soukus pioneers, he learned to fingerpick intricate figures on the guitar, and eventually moved to Tanzania where his career took off with Orchestra Maquis. More than thirty years ago, Vumbi arrived in Stockholm, where he started performing with Ahmadu Jah and the Highlife Orchestra, and eventually founded his own group, the Dekula Band. Since many years, Stockholm audiences have been able to enjoy the group's relaxed virtuoso guitar arpeggios and rolling rhythms at Little Nairobi, a club housed inside the Södra station.


In parallel with the Dekula band, Vumbi has made many solo recordings, and some of them have now been collected on the album Congo Guitar, published by Sing a Song Fighter, the label run by Karl Jonas Winqvist (Wau Wau Collectif and First Floor Power). In songs like Zanzibar, Kinshasa & Vällingby, the listener is treated to a brilliant instrumental dream soukous, where layers of guitars sing as if in a kind of polyphonic call-and-response choir.

Florence Adooni

You may have seen her performing with Alogte Oho's Sounds of Joy? Or heard her in collaborations with Guy One or with Jimi Tenor. Indeed, even before performing under her own name, Florence Adooni had already inspired awe as a vital part of Ghana's frafra gospel scene. And once her debut single was out, it really set West African dance floors in motion – as well as European ones, and soon she was signed to the German label Philophon. Frafra gospel is the name of a traditional style of church music from northern Ghana, centered around euphoric choral chants and rhythms. Florence Adooni has been called the new queen of the genre, but this young artist is too much of an innovator to feel at home in just one musical style. In songs like Mam Pe'ela Su'ure, she expands the melodic vocabulary of the genre while bringing intense dance rhythms to a boil. Backed by a mega-soulful seven-piece band, Florence Adooni creates a rich sound flavored by highlife and afrobeat. Brilliant guitar melodies compete with brass attacks over a tight rhythm section.
