«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.
