We are excited to share with you all that this we are teaming up with Obscura Films(an award-winning Production House dedicated to producing compelling, filmic and diverse content that moves and provokes) for Djembe Monks’ #RAINMAKER which premiered on Wednesday 19th August 2020.
This music video/short film is a visual manifestation of Djembe Monks combination of ethnic & electronic sound and is motivated by the groups passion for dance. The concept touches on the global water crisis and draws inspiration from a traditional rain-dance performed by the baKalanga people from Botswana and Western Zimbabwe. Rooted in traditional Zimbabwean Mythology & folklore and interwoven with contemporary elements.
Djembe Monks are a Tribal House music band from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Established in 2011 the band is made up of Khotso – Music Producer, Slim – DJ and Manni on percussion. Traditional African drums and organic vocals infused with a modern wheel spinning hum, the act is popular for its inimitable and enthralling blend of house music interwoven with live percussion.
To the group, music is an art-form which taps into deep roots of culture and heritage to transcend their beliefs into sound.
