Zanj Radio premiers Umbalembe

Umbalembe is a soundscape documentary about the island of Jamaica curated by Zanj Racc. The project is based on the work of Zanj Racc and DJ Afifa, sound artist who live and work in Jamaica. The artwork for the project was designed by Isabel Dennis. 

In August 2018 a preview of the project was presented at the Umbalembe event at Mazola’s “playground” in Gordon Town, St. Andrew Jamaica. The event was an attempt to introduce sound art.

Zanj Racc explained that the key to curating Umbalemebe was to organize the material into themes and then present a macro and micro perspective on life in Jamaica.

Umbalembe premiered on Saturday Nov 10 on Zanj Radio during World Music Fusion with Dj Zanj Racc.

Listen to Umbalembe by downloading the Zanj Radio app for Android or Apple devices or via soundcloud.
