Nigerian Kora and Metro FM Award winner, Kunle Ayo has completed a project with internationally renowned Zimbabwean musician, Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi. Ayo and Tuku have completed the song called ‘Ile’ which means home in Kunle’s native Yoruba tongue.
Ile features the unique talents of both guitarists, whose natural in-studio chemistry makes for a smooth blend of the best that African jazz has to offer.
The song, performed in Shona and Yoruba, talks to the importance of home and that feeling of comfort and safety of being at home. Ile inspires a longing for the familiarity of home, regardless of how close or far it is.
The track is aimed for global release on iTunes, on 1 September 2015, and will be released along with house remix.
