- bukuru celestin & snarky puppy: amkeni
(2013, cd, usa, ropeadope)
As Michael explains in the liner notes: "... so my role was basically to take the music out of a 100% authentic Tanzanian / Burundian context and meld it with Snarky Puppy's sound and strengths."
The result got released in 2013. "Amkeni" is a beautiful mix between two musical cultures.
Bukaru Celestin, Ephrazie Niyonzima, Elvanie Niyibigira and Furaha Ndayishimiye on vocals, plus Snarky Puppy with guest drummer Jason 'JT' Thomas.
