The Gallery ‘Kothibro Lockdown Mix’

One of my first mixes in a very long time, a fusion of sounds guaranteed to take you to a special place.

 

It starts with the track ‘Kothibro’ a very special track indeed, it sets the tone for the rest of the mix, delving into funk, soul, even a Bridgette Bardot song mixed with ‘Les Djinns’ (Trentemøller Remix), this is Part One, Part two will be uploaded in a separate post, coming soon! ENJOY!

KOTHBIRO

A hauntingly beautiful, sparse world music piece. Original song by Ayub Ogada.

LYRICS

Koth biro (Rain is Coming)
by Ayub Ogada

Aaaah haye haye
Haye haye
Haye haye

Oooh mam’ uwinja
Koth biro
Keluru dhok e dala (x2)

Yaye nyithindogi
un koro un utimoru nade?
Koth biro
Keluru dhok e dala

Translation from Dholuo:

Kothbiro (rain is coming)
Auma do you hear what I say
The rain is on it’s way
Return our cattle home

Yaye the children
What is it that you think you do?
The rain is on it’s way
Return our cattle home.
