"Agua Salgada," (Salt Water) by Chude Mondlane, came out of "live" improve sessions with the group Projecto TRANSITO (Chico Antonio, Edmundo Matsielane, Chude Mondlane and Nico M'Sagarra). It speaks of the bodies of water that carried slaves from their African homelands to the "New World" and into the diaspora. "Agua Salgada" begins with the calls from the Xigovia (made from a masala fruit - bit.ly/12bhLwB), a globular flute instrument used for communication. It is a work in progress…

Chude Mondlane: Vocals, Xigovia (globular flute)
