Am­mara teams up with SA artistes on new song

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Correspondent

WHEN an award win­ning pro­ducer — Mobi Dixon —mixes South African house, afro pop and Mas’kandi, one can only expect magic from the stu­dio.

And this was the re­sult af­ter Zim­babwe’s Am­mara Brown teamed up with South Africa’s Zinhle Ngidi of the Shu­maya fame and Sizwe Ngubane to pro­duce a tribal house track – Owami at eTV’s Coke Stu­dio.

Owami, which was re­leased on eTV, has been up­loaded on YouTube where it has gar­nered more than 7 000 views.

Ngidi starts the song with her sul­try har­mo­nious voice. Ngubane’s silky voice comes in on the cho­rus with a Mas’kandi touch.

Am­mara brings the Zim­bab­wean touch with her cheeky, al­lur­ing voice.

The love song with a heavy Mas’kandi base guitar, fast paced beat of SA house and a dis­tinct sprin­kling of the mbira has been de­scribed by lis­ten­ers as a sub­lime piece of art, ma­ture and pul­sat­ing.

“It has sub­lim­i­nal po­tent and makes even those not-so-fond of house mu­sic dance, al­beit un­will­ingly,” said one lis­tener.

Some said when they first heard the song, they felt like the orches­tra was play­ing from within them and the mu­sic was danc­ing un­der­neath their skin.
