Zili(zo)pendwa: as dance music and nostalgia in East Africa.
East African "classic" music, known in Tanzania as zilipendwa or in Kenya as zilizopendwa (literally, those which were loved) is making a comeback. The nostalgia for zili(zo)pendwa is far from being a melancholic rumination over days long-past, but is enacted instead for the sake of health and community well-being. Zili(zo)pendwa is a conscious act towards musicking the values of a fading era, creating temporary autonomous zones where the perceived chaos and noise of neoliberal globalization are now rushing in.

The striking Au Revoir, Mogadishu mixtape, a collection of pre-war songs from the golden days of Somali music, sounds from before the war, songs from before the beautiful city of Mogadishu became a battle ground for 2 decades. The 45-minute Somali mix runs through a number of selections from the likes of Dur Dur Band, Waaberi, Qadiijo Qalanjo and several other acts.
This mix of 70s and 80s Somali sound is a rich blend of traditional Somali folk music infused with Western funk, rock and reggae and a touch of Indian, Arabic and African flavors. There are hardly any proper releases of this soulful sound of guitar, synthesizer and drums.

Erika and Siam in short interview share with us their view on music, life. Both passionate about music where the worlds meet see that the planet is globally connected where borders and prejudices are melting down. Both aware of the rise of new consciousness, rise of humanity where balance between material and spiritual is the key; balance without neglecting one on the expense of another, remembering healthy traditions. With stars in their eyes, warmth on the faces and hearts on their palms they see hope for the humanity.
Further they are more hopeful since seeing the ongoing experiment called Auroville.
On Saturday 8th of August at Well Caffe in SveDame will share with the community their music with Erica on vocal, Siam on guitar and Suresh on drums.
