Vindodo by Tonga Boys
Displacement, migration and encountering oddities and strangeness of the life paths are the main themes of the songs presented here. The title track takes us away to the forest path haunted by some entities. The opening track is the invitation to the party honouring the stranger. Another track "Nakhla Nekha" is a song expressing sadness of loosing contact with a loved one by just hearing the phone signal. There is a bit of hopeful expression and coming to understand that only hard work can change our fate in "Ndipatali"
Released by Polish label 100hz in an interesting silver plastic bag - second album of Tonga boys brings us to understanding what is real Africa like and not only through understanding the hardships of economical nature or a cold anthropological study but also by understanding the way to find the spiritual and emotional catharsis through music and creative activity by defining your own genre.
With all the hashtags that this great album can be labelled with - the predispositon to understand the boundaries by crossing them is the key to fully absorb the energy of it.
