The 2-Syds, Sydaira Rose and Sydney Ten'ani, feel privileged and honored to present a jazz rendition of their Ndau African cultural classic and Sukuta family "home-grown" heritage tunes. Some of the tunes were passed down at least four generations and their meanings and contexts are addressed in the book "Precious Mt. Silinda" penned by their grandmother Mrs. Kate E. Sukuta
This album comes to you in two versions, instrumental and vocal, which are complementary and equally satisfying. The vocal version is sang in both Ndau and English (Ndanglish). In addition, all versions of this music are also available for downloading through digital media outlets.
