Mahaba which means love is a newly formed band by multi-instrumentalist Philadelphia Murefu. In their first collaboration with vocalist Beulah Quaynor, their music connected with their African heritage from Zimbabwe and Ghana presenting rich African musical culture in a contemporary context. Written by Jason Vanherp, Kurangarira has a unique, captivating and uplifting groove that one cannot help but make a move no matter how small. The tune is a blend of vocals, contemporary instruments such as synths, live acoustic drums and traditional instruments, Marimba, Hosho (Shaker) and Ngoma (Congas). Kurangarira means commemoration – a ceremony or celebration of a person or event. In Africa it is a song for post rainy season when people are celebrating their crops to flourish. In Australia it’s just about being grateful as we come out of the winter hibernation and celebrate life.With the launch of Music Masala, Radio 4EB is proud to be Sharing the World with You!
