this is vivacious post-modern afro-electronica that bristles with creativity, fun and excitement.

Deconstructed royal-court music from the forgotten kingdoms of the Uganda, reconstructed electronic wedding music, fluorescent pink African pop, crunched 8-bit drum machines and a 10-foot long monster xylophone are just a few of their rich sonic canvas. The music blends a fully electronic sensibility with unusual, hand-crafted, African one-string fiddles, a 200-year-old harp and an enormous, group-played xylophone. It mixes traditional Ugandan folk songs and modern pop forms into a new vision. Hackett blends African music with European electronic compositions and soundtrack scores - The sounds of hauntingly-dark vocoded vocals, crushed electronics, and poly-rhythmic drum machines sit alongside chiming African fiddles, rippling harps and children's laughter. He is a member of Owiny Sigoma band having sung on and co-written a lot of their work spanning 3 albums.
