Thomas Mapfumo‘s 1986 track “Shumba” gets an extended edit from Dan Snaith’s (aka Caribou) side project, Daphni. Thomas Mapfumo is one of Zimbabwe’s most notable music icons who incorporated traditional Shona songs with political lyrics in his Chimurenga music and was a threat to the minority white Zimbabwae (Rhodesia) government for the years leading up to its independence in 1980. This extra long edit gets a solid 4/4 beat and extended breaks making it an infinite jam highlighted by gorgeous guitars. The flip side is worth a listen as well.
