Shabaka Hutchings’ debut release under his own name “Shabaka”, Afrikan Culture comes out on Impulse! Records May 20, 2022. Known for his globally-acclaimed, groundbreaking groups Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, and Shabaka and the Ancestors, this release finds Shabaka exploring a quieter, more meditative space. The 8-track release is primarily made up of Shabaka on various wind instruments with other complementary instrumentation sprinkled throughout. The EP serves as an incredibly meditative and reflective work that can be appreciated actively or as an ambient aural backdrop.
