Blip Discs have always been a fine label, but they’ve unearthed some real gold here. These recordings hail from Uganda and the 25-strong Islamic devotional ensemble Mubashira Mataali Group. Enabled by funding from the Arts Council, Nyege Nyege Festival and Bayimba Festival as well as Jude from the Ugandan National Theatre, the Blip crew were able to travel to record Sulaiman Sulait’s ensemble. The resulting five tracks, captured in superb quality, use drums and call-and-response vocals to sing the praises of Allah. A fantastic release.
