Format: Maroon LP
Shabaka Hutchings debut release under his own name, Afrikan Culture, was released on Impulse! Records in May 2022. Known for his globally-acclaimed, groundbreaking groups (Sons of Kemet, The Comet Is Coming, Shabaka & The Ancestors), this release finds Shabaka at a quieter, more meditative space than the pulsing, driving material found in his other groups. The 7-track release is primarily made up of Shabaka on various wind instruments with other complimentary instrumentation sprinkled throughout. It is a beautifully contemplative record that is the perfect soundtrack for anyone looking to enter a reflective headspace. Available on maroon vinyl, exclusively for Record Store Day, Black Friday 2022.
