Reggae artist, Sally Nyundo, is in South Africa where he is recording a new album titled Sanctified at Blue Arts Studios owned by Chris Kele.
Kele, a Malawian producer and musician based in South Africa, last year opened doors to Malawian artists, saying he wants to help in producing quality music for them targeting the international market.
This is Nyundo’s sixth album adding to Nyimbo, Nyasa Reggae Revolution, Bimbi Overstanding, Usadandaule Malawi and Tingoti Phee.
The dreadlocked artist, said yesterday he has not been holding performances because he was busy writing songs.
“The songs needed more time and maturity, in terms of music arrangement and lyrics, and that is why I went quiet so as to have inspiration in my quietness,” Nyundo said.
He said he is almost done with the 10-track album which he described as a serious reggae collection.
“This album is more of my personal experiences through my passage through my life journey,” the ‘Ras Amadya Nzimbe’, creator said.
He said he is in the rainbow nation not for long but to work on the album.
“Again, I just needed a different place and environment so that I focus and commit to myself consciousness out of the usual and to see the world differently and to be inspired by a different people’s cultural understanding,” Nyundo said.
