Zilizopendwa, AfroMix #3

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.
