Description « Zimba - Baleka (12inch) »
"An utterly bonkers slice of new wave, post-disco and mbira wizardry." - TheVinylFactory
In the mid-70s, musician and songwriter Phil Arosa fled Southern Rhodesia's apartheid (now Zimbabwe) to settle in the Netherlands and pursue his musical career under more mundane skies. Alongside his partner Marga, he started the band Zimba which played for ten years in clubs around the country.
During those years, Baleka was the only studio recorded song and was released in 1983. This record went unnoticed at the time but this minimal and powerful mix of African rhythms with a New-Wave voice and an irresistible mbira gimmick deserved better.
We are happy to revive this track and have asked our London friends from The Comet Is Coming and Blackjoy (Siwo) from Paris to revisit this piece. The results are two very different versions of “Baleka” but definitely carved for the dancefloors.
A1 : Baleka (Long version) (05.12)
A2 : Baleka (The Comet is Coming Remix) (05.53)
B1: Baleka (Siwo Edit) (07.50)
B2: Baleka (Short version) (3.02)
