about

Mbotela was recorded at TMG Studios in Mustang, Oklahoma.

Mbotela is Swahili for "regeneration". This album represents Msafiri's efforts to continue the traditions of his people in the modern world.

"Msafiri's music captures centuries of Gogo tradition through his soulful lyrics, transient voice, and wide instrumental talent. He has managed to fuse the musical traditions of his ancestors with a modern twist to create a sound that truly embodies the African experience."
