It’s been some time coming, but Kondi Band — the inspired Afro-electronic collaboration between Dutty Artz member Chief Boima and Sierra Leonean kondi (thumb piano) virtuoso Sorie Kondi — will release their debut LP Salone in partnership with Strut Records and Chief Boima’s own INTL BLK, this June 2nd.
The album follows the release of 2016’s Belle Wahallah EP, which spawned a #1 Spotify Viral Chart hit in the form of the track “Yeanoh (Powe Handa Blingabe),” as well as The Freetown Tapes, a free collection of Kondi’s solo work in the early 2000’s, mixed by Boima.
Salone arrives on CD, 2LP, and digital formats. Pre-order the album and get the song “Titi Dem Too Service” (performed live at WOMEX below) now!
