Now-Again Goodness: Some free Zambian Psych Rock, limited edition reissues and upcoming records from WITCH and Musi-O-Tunya

Now-Again features perhaps the most eclectic and exciting roster of any label we know of - in addition to the sheer variety of sounds, there are reissues and current releases from legends in music scenes the world over. A perfect example is the Zamrock stuff, featuring amazing talents like WITCH’s Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda and Musi-O-Tunya founder Rikki Ililonga.

Here's a track from WITCH:

Recently, Chanda and Ililonga went to Rennes to perform Zamrock live with Karl Hector & The Malcouns at France’s Transmusicales Festival. The proceedings were recorded, and Now-Again has made two tracks available for free download:

"Dark Sunrise"

"Munzi Wa Kangwada"

Also, Now-Again is currently offering some single LP reissues of their Zamrock archive - the original box sets sold out. Click here for more information.

And later this summer a new Musi-O-Tunya record will be available. Stay tuned, because we'll have more to say and hopefully share closer to the date... Ililonga's guitar creativity is simply amazing, as is the bounty of output from Now-Again Records.
