Saronde

Bio

Saronde was just a seed of an idea when musician/producer duo Chris Pedley and Olly Wood launched their Beating Heart label in 2016. The project started as a collaboration between established music producers from Africa and around the globe to remix vintage field recordings from the International Library of African Music (ILAM).

Fast forward to 2019 when Chris and Ollie were touring Kenya playing these sounds to modern dance floors, they connected with some incredible emerging talent and got in the studio. Using 70 year old field recordings made by ethnomusicologist Hugh Tracey, one of Pedley’s distant relatives, as seeds for new compositions, Saronde was born, fusing ancient sounds with modern musical concepts.
