Masauko – Ilala Live
May 19th is the anniversary of Malcolm X’s birthday. Come to Life is honoring this day with the release of “Ilala”, the first single from Masauko’s upcoming self-titled record. “Ilala” finds its roots in an old traditional Malawian wedding song that describes the voyage of a ship. In his version of the song, Masauko pictures this ship as a vessel that takes the listener on a voyage to the place of the ancestors.
This powerful acoustic performance of “Ilala” was filmed at Stowel Lake Farm on Salt Spring Island. The album version of “Ilala” was produced and recorded by Come to Life at Milestone Recording Studio in Cape Town, South Africa. Pre-order the album and prepare for a moving musical experience as the entire Masauko record is released on June 16th.
