EA Wave Releases New Single, "Alango", Featuring Makadem


In anticipation of their next album, Kenyan DJ/Producer collective EA Wave have released the first single, “Alango”. The collective team up with acclaimed Kenyan folk singer Makadem who specializes in Benga, a genre that became one of Africa’s most vital sounds popularized in the 1970s.

The emerging sounds of the Nu Nairobi music scene and iconic Benga weave together on “Alango” as Makadem’s striking voice narrates the story of a girl who has become too modern for village life.

Living up to their name, ‘East African Wave’, this single is just a taste of the musical fusions the collective is about to serve on their upcoming album which is set to feature artists from Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Tanzania and Somalia.
