I’ve lost count of how many albums Flamingods have put out now, and on what formats. Part of that is because in the modern world it’s pretty impossible to know what counts as an album and what doesn’t (was ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ Drake’s forth LP, or first mixtape? Even he doesn’t know. And who really cares?), but it’s also because this collective of cosmic jammers from Bahrain via Brixton don’t operate much within conventional boundaries (their first show lasted all day in an ATP chalet), and their freeform music follows that vein of its-fun-to-play.
Here’s the EP’s (and it definitely is an EP) title track. Of which the group says:
“Kewali is a song deep rooted in love and the idea of celebrating what’s around you; to be accepting and open to new experiences and cultures. It’s something we felt particularly passionate about whilst writing the EP, given the uncertainty felt by so many around the world right now”
