Tumi unveils 28-day free daily download
Starting today for the month of February, South African poet and emcee Tumi Molekane will share 28 songs – one for each day – for free.
The 28 days: A Musical Retrospective serves to introduce new fans to the music, as well as give old loyal fans a freebie.
For the fans who will have come on board in the latter part of his 12-year recording history, this is an introduction to an exemplary catalogue in which names like Immortal Technique, Jack Parrow, and Lebo Mashile have featured slots.
They’re songs familiar for a legion of fans that will reinforce the inimitable history that Tumi shares with them as the leader of the period-defining hip-hop/jazz/funk band Tumi and The Volume, with whom he galvanised world audiences via three critically acclaimed albums.
They also know him as the rapper’s rapper who, two albums deep, is virtually without parallel on the South African hip-hop scene, though his artistic offspring here are plenty.
