Five days from now, Nsimbi will be outing their latest production ‘Mbaga’ the first single off their upcoming Infinity EP which is a celebration of Ugandan / East African sounds, recorded, mixed & mastered in East Africa.
The single combines Baganda folklore storytelling and Jewish niggun vocals merging on a bed of Zanzibari-inspired East African rhythms. The kidandali drum kick provides an irresistible baseline that many will find hard to resist the urge to dance. This is for lovers and party people all over the continent.
Because African weddings are riots of colors, a celebration of life and often very diverse with all ages and people of various backgrounds in attendance. ‘Mbaga’ is the spirit of joy and exuberance that binds lovers together.
The colorful video for ‘Mbaga’ was shot on the shores of Lake Nalubale (Victoria). NSIMBI in the upper realm lay in grass singing while wearing green which is the color of the chakra responsible for unconditional love.
If two people from two planets were to fall in love, ‘Mbaga’ would be the word to describe this colorful cosmic celebration. NSIMBI plays on this analogy to merge two worlds on this new single and with their mission to create positive, uplifting art, this jam deserves a nod from all worlds.
‘Mbaga’ was written by the duo and produced by Kuseim while Matege Rogers directed the video and Lillian Maximilian did the Choreography. The attires in the video were styled by Abbas Kaijuka.
