Saronde

Bio

Saronde is a music duo from London, in the UK comprising musician Chris Pedley and producer Olly Wood.

The duo started off when they formed the Beating Heart Label in 2016. The project began 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). As they tour Africa playing these sounds to modern dance floors, Pedley and Wood continue to meet incredible musicians. As they keep engaging with more artists, their label continues to move into a more artist-focused direction.

When Pedley and Wood were DJaying in Kenya earlier this year, they connected with amazing emerging talent and manifested magic with them. Using 70-year-old field recordings (made by ethnomusicologist Hugh Tracey, one of Pedley’s distant relatives) as seeds for new compositions, the Saronde sound was born fusing ancient sounds with modern musical concepts.
