One night I was perusing YouTube, clicking on links after listening to a song with curious sounding band names and titles of songs. You know, just for kicks. I clicked on a band called Jinja Safari, and the song was called Forest Eyes. The song started with some light drumming and a very light melody with a simple guitar line with some nice spacious sounds in the background with very calming vocals, almost making me think I was in a forest hanging out and this was playing in the background. This jaunty little tune put me on a “safari” of my own to find more music from this group. (yeah…I was hesitant about that pun but decided to use it anyways)
I then found the song Mud, and that song was even better!!!! This one had more of that awesome spacious sound in the background. The next discovery was Hiccups, and that was just a pleasure to my ears. The album Locked by Land is actually a compilation album from their EP’s. After listening all the way through, I deemed this album a necessity of ownership. Each song has these little surprises, that seem like they were gift wrapped just for you! So with that note, I am not going to spoil much more about their songs or anything and let you (the listener) go on that safari of your own (did it again…) and discover this wonderful world of sound Jinja Safari has created for the world!
