Mona Ki Ngi Xica (Pablo Fierro Remix)


MoBlack Records
MBR404 | 2020-10-09  
As the earth’s axial tilt switches gears, Canary Islands born and bred virtuoso Pablo Fierro returns to MoBlack Records and resurrects the iconic Mona Ki Ngi Xica by none other than the African revolutionary Knight, Bonga. A versatile and accomplished dj/producer, Tenerife’s musical prodigy parses the 70’s original, injecting a bit of pep into its step to pique the soulful danceability out of the legendary Angolan folk and semba singer/songwriter, born Jose Adelino Barcelo de Carvalho’s saudade-saturated and politically charged requiem. Nestled in Latin infused rhythms and romantic acoustics, Bonga’s effusive rasp cracks Fierro’s crisp beats, tropical groove and voltaic fusillades, rendering a delicate 5:39 minute sojourn that captures and retains the complexity of uncertainties from its time or any other, for that matter. Whether in post/Colonial Angola where Mona Ki Ngi Xica was born, or within the exiled humanity of today, MBR404 pins the universality of loneliness but handles it through curative motion all at once - a perfect antidote for longing and no less importantly, soothing reprieve in any, even imagined, dancefloor!
