Msifungiwe Nira Vol 3

Kwaya Ya Patandi — Msifungiwe Nira Vol 3

*—There was an extra song at the end (I think)

As the overall vibe of their music videos attests, Kwaya Ya Patandi are a dead serious gospel choir bursting with joy and spirit. There’s a relaxing lilt to all this, despite the sterile effect of what sounds like an old Thomaschurch organ jamming out those hallow beats and majestic harmonies.

Tanzania’s gospel scene is large and varied. This group from Arusha represents one regional approach to perhaps the most malleable musical forms out there. Taarab gospel, gospel reggae, soukous gospel, etc. It’s all been happening for a long time and represents a huge part of the music industry in many places.

kila nisikiapo sauti za hawa waimbaji wa patandi zinanikumbusha enzi zetu wakati kwaya zilikuwa za uimbaji wa kiungu zilizo na upako sikama siku hizi nasikia tu kelele nyingi na kurukaruka kwingi kusikokuwa na funzo lolote. laiti kizazi cha leo kingeng’amua ufunuo huu wa uimbaji wa wanakwaya hawa.wangehubiri watu kweli kuliko kuwatumbuiza.
