Musa Okwonga – Ring The Bells

British/Ugandan poet, journalist and musician Musa Okwonga has dropped a video for "Ring The Bells' which comes off new EP, "The Nomadic".

 

British/Ugandan poet, journalist and musician Musa Okwonga offers a thoughtful tale of adventure and transition on his new EP, The Nomadic (due out July 14).

The 4-track project, produced by UK-based multi-instrumentalist Greg Surmacz (of the British bass outfit Paper Tiger), documents Okwonga’s departure from his hometown of London to Berlin, a move that brought about conflicting emotions for the multi-talented artiste.

“I was in plenty of pain when I left London, a city that I thought I would never part with,” he explains in a press release. “Yet, at the same time, I was growing excited about my new life, and I think that this contradiction is present throughout this record.”

The Nomadic also reflects on the experience of Okwonga’s parents, who migrated to Great Britain from Uganda in  the 1970s.
