Don Zilla has announced his debut solo album.
East African artist Don Zilla, who is a resident with Kampala’s Nyege Nyege collective and manager of the city’s Boutiq Studios, will release his debut album via Ugandan underground imprint, Hakuna Kulala, in June this year, following his two-track debut ‘From the Cave to the World’ EP on the label in 2019.
Described as a “bold step” and a “bejeweled tapestry”, the nine-track ‘Ekizikiza Mubwengula’ LP follows the release of single ‘Bujingo’, a gloomy, atmospheric journey through percussion and warped textures. There’s also another track from the LP, ‘Tension’, available now.
In January last year, Don Zilla and Elvin Brandhi released the ‘Headroof’ LP via Hakuna Kulala under their collaborative moniker, Villaelvin.
You can listen to ‘Bujingo’, and check out the visuals for the new track, below. Pre-order the LP ahead of its June 18th release here.
