about

'Dragon Jenny' is Kalaha's first release since the award winning album 'Masala' was released in the end of 2016.
The band - consisting of two electronic musicians (Rumpistol & Spejderrobot) and the two live instrumentalists Niclas Knudsen (gtr) & Emil de Waal (dr) - won a Danish Music Award in 2017 and received the following words:

”The musicians of this release merge together in a drone landscape of sound and playfulness. At times you feel like being inside a clay cabin in Africa's roaring savannah - the next moment you are blown out into a distant galaxy on a trip into space surrounded by flashing lasers and bubbly sci-fi sounds.”

The statement also fits the new single perfectly. Here the band explores an atmospheric electronic sound which will undoubtedly perform well at dance floors throughout the summer.

Kalaha will be playing at several festivals this year, including Boomtown Fair in England, which has 60,000 sold out tickets this year and will be Kalaha's first major foreign festival.

'Dragon Jenny' is the first single from the band's forthcoming EP 'Mama Ngoma' which will be out this fall.

QUOTES:
“Dragon Jenny" finds us on the plains of Africa taking a stroll and soaking in the landscape. The song is a journey, we pass by animals and an oasis. The air gets thick as the beat drops, then we continue on. Elements of house, jazz, rock, folk and world music are fused effortlessly” - Dancefloor Mayhem (US)

"This track is an exploration of African rhythms and the use of instrumentals providing a jazzy yet electronic tune... t’s an impressive 6:07 that reminds a live experience, of a jam session of well skilled musicians, without loosing all the emotion and feeling of music. It’s a reaffirmation of the fact that all music have their roots in West Africa. With Dragon Jenny, the band allows itself to combine the African inspiration together with traditional electronic music with synthesizers, such as the keyboards, summed by electric guitar and rhythms." - Synths of Eden (DE)
