A new song by the fishing women of Lake Turkana

P1140563__1204_x_903_A field recording sent in for us by Luke Henrion from a trip to Kenya – this is a group of fishing women (pictured) near Lake Turkana celebrating the arrival of Luke and his group of visitors with a traditional song. The remix takes a simple loop from the song, which by virtue of repetition actually sounds like it becomes a snippet of a phrase in English (to me, at least), and builds drones over it, with an extra layer of drums to emphasise the beat created by the vocal loop’s interplay with the ambient sounds of dancing.
