Editors’ Notes The celebrated dance duo Black Motion tap into Malopo spirits and warbled electronic pathways for art as near to the spirit of Malombo’s space-jazz soundclash as sonically possible. “Prayer for Rain” is a stormy reminder of their psychedelic inclinations. “Andinayo” with regular collaborator Nokwazi is a garage cut as fitting for an illegal rave as it is for a banging house party. Folk singer Msaki’s beaming vocals provide light and love to the percussive protests of the biographical “I Rise”. “I was born in ’86, in the state of emergency”, she sings.
