Black Espresso and Ami Faku With Rework of Apartheid-Period Protest Anthem, «There’s Music Within the Air»

«This music symbolizes the present of music.»

That is how Black Espresso referred to Letta Mbulu and Caiphus Semenya’s «There’s Music In The Air,» a protest anthem for the anti-apartheid motion written by the South African musicians in 1976. At the moment, alongside fellow South African artist Ami Faku, the Grammy-winning DJ and dance music producer has launched his personal rework of the historic single by way of Gallo Report Firm.

Marked by a spirit-stirring afro-soul association of laid-back percussion rhythms and retro synths, the music is customized for sun-drenched strolls and afternoon unwinds. «There’s music within the air / It makes the sorrow go / Let the music take you there / Removed from the world ,» Faku angelically harmonizes. Her voice floats crystal clear above pillowy textures and sultry instrumentals.
