JAGWA MUSIC is seeping out from the concrete in Dar Es Salaam. It's similar to what we've come to expect from new regional African urban music: trademark casios trumpet through old speakers a la Konono, traditional meets retro via the strange African time warp (i.e., people use what they can access -- probably the same "retro" instruments you're ordering on Ebay). But no matter how you theorize, this music has grandeur and grit. It's like a more dense juju with sweeping tides of sounds that wash against each other. We haven't been able to find any tapes (yet!) but there are some live recordings made by a label in Germany. Wash yourself in the track below and check the myspace.
