NAMPIRI: Singer, Song writer, Poet and Rap artist who hails from Mqanduli, Mthatha (Eastern Cape) delivers a heartfelt Soul expression on her Radio single "Tshela" (cling onto) currently on high rotation on Umhlobo wenene fm 92.0 MHz . The lyrics; a mendatory problem solving feminine opinion to a love affair in a brink of collapse.
Nampiri currently takes short power naps on the CEBO MAKI studio couches and is up again for an all night session of vocal production recording for her untitled Soul outfit Debut album.
Asked about the album Nampiri explains; this album is a time capsule that explores music from today to six/seven decades back so theres a lot of history here but dont get me wrong the album is going to be as fun as a 1st Birthday i promise you.
The project is a 12 Track album. The production is dynamic and doesnt really aim to please or stay safe but rather to take the listener back and forth between musical cornerstones so i hope it takes them on a journey of sonic discovery to dance, laugh, reminisce and cry.
If i were to pigeon box my sound i would say; Soulful disco and jazzy Blues.
My producer/recording engineer Top Shayela and myself embarked on a musical research for this project cos we wanted to create a sound with nostalgic melodies, production that is easy to the ear as well as an album that has a much longer shelf life, we want people to discover interesting things in this music after 5 or more years of listening to it.
