Owiny Sigoma Band: free DL

Some info on this: "Owiny Sigoma Band are offering a free download of their track Magret Aloor (see below) taken from the forthcoming album Power Punch. Released on Brownswood Recordings on 8th April, Power Punch will be preceded by the single Owiny Techno on 1st April. The Quietus premiered the single calling it a "brilliant cut from an album that will most certainly be essential listening."

Made up of four London musicians, Jesse Hackett (vox / keys) Louis Hackett (bass), Sam Lewis (guitar) and Tom Skinner (drums) and two Kenyan musicians, Joseph Nyamungu, a Nyatiti master musician, and Charles Owoko, a Luo drummer, Owiny Sigoma Band recorded Power Punch in London. Exploring new influences from techno to electronica, the Nairobi / London based band continue to also embrace the sounds of East Africa."
