TUNE WaqWaq Kingdom - Mum Tells Me
WaqWaq Kingdom's endless range of stylistic adventures sees them uniquely draw lines between traditional Japanese and contemporary electronic, between Jamaican dancehall and 8-bit techno, African polyrhythms and experimental music, with plenty more helping to colour a powerful, vibrant palette.
Taken from their latest album 'Essaka Hoisa' on Phantom Limb. ‘Mum Tells Me’ features a wonderful patchwork of electronic bleeps, Shinto bells and Afro-trap like percussion. It’s a song about remembering your past loved ones (singer Kiki sadly lost both her parents last year) and passing down their teachings and stories to the new generation of kin.
