Groove meets culture in this rapturous musical excursion through the joyful and melodic rhythms of South Africa. A fluid and harmonious synthesis of native textures, impeccable live instrumentation, perfect pop sensibilities, and detailed percussion.


TRIBAL. STIRRING. HYPNOTIC. FIERCE. STUNNING. These are some of the words being used to describe Deane Ogden’s newest sonic outing, KWELA — a rapturous musical excursion into the joyful and melodic rhythms of South Africa.

Turning again to the mobile recording method he utilized for his solo debut EASTERN CHRONICLE, Ogden has fashioned a fluid and harmonious synthesis of South African textures, funk-oriented grooves, perfect pop sensibilities, and detailed percussion with the talents of native instrumentalists including the Jo “Bombo” Zegwe (guitar), Deryn Cullen (cello), Gig Jooste (keyboards), and the Soweto Horns, as well as native South African vocalists Mack Chibesa, Sipho Solomon, Temwani Kalenga, Bronsil Chipo, Veronica Look, Jordynn Towne, and many more. Deane also enlisted the talents of Western session musicians Panos Kolias (accordion), David Freeman (Hammond B3), Rob Eisler, Mike Holt, & Steve Ouimette (lead guitars), Al Slavik (electric bass), Glen Doll (harmonica), and Simon Harrison (Nyangile soundbox and African fiddle). Recording sessions for KWELA took place in Johannesburg and Capetown, South Africa; Congo-Kinshasa, Africa; Mulamba, Zambia; Nairobi, Kenya; Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Phoenix, USA; Jakarta, Indonesia; and London, UK.
