After 20 years in of the creation of Kungo Muzic, Bredda David Obi and the Tribal vibes is releasing their 10th album. Obi stopped by the Guardian Newspaper to explain the album is a mix of previously released songs as well as new ones. It is entitled "Day D Dawn" and features 14 tracks.  

As the title implies, a new day is dawning in Belize, new era of awareness where hope for a better future abounds. This theme is in keeping with the pervasive spirit of Kungo Muzik.

The 14-track album features new arrangements of previously released Tribal Vibes tunes such as “Stronger”, “Experience”, “Sambai Da Muchula”, and “Mi Plantation”. Complementing the old are first releases “We Roots De Ina Afreeka”, a fusion of a particularly Belizean feel with rich jive vocals reminiscent of South Africa; “Sanctuary 2” an instrumental sequel to 2008’s “Sanctuary”; and a completely fresh treatment of Kriol tradition’s “Freetown Gial”, interpreted by jazz-guitar chording of Jason Guerrero and  musical craftsmanship of Dale Davis on clarinet. A Kungo-ized version of the latter also appears.

While the pure drumming of Truth Cut Steel represents the clearest return to Kriol rootsy Gale Point Manatee Sambai, other debut songs include “Brukdong Vibes”, “Sweet Belizean Music” and “All Day All Nite”. Each listener is expected to find his/her own preference from this project.

The project’s personnel are David’s son Nkrumah & Indio Obi, Dale Davis, Harry “Chagu” Thompson, Bill Gabourel, Ernestine Carballo, Darwin Lino. A special thanks is given to Jeremy Lamb for sharing the title track “Day di Dawn”.

Bredda David & Tribal Vibes will hold a free family concert entitled “Day di Dawn” on Sunday, August 19th at the BTL Park in Belize City. Obi says the concert is a way of bringing the music to the Belizean public who have been following him for the past 20 years.
