Damon Albarn’s latest musical project is an audacious week-long recording project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Blur/Gorillaz frontman is working with a wide array of musicians during his brief stay in the region, and he’s just posted one of those collaborations online. Tout Puissant Mukalo features on this recording, which is titled “Hallo” and lasts for 51 seconds. Presumably this is just a brief clip of a longer work, but it gives an idea of how the overall project will sound, with Albarn expertly manipulating his recordings to provide something that doesn’t sound a million miles away from Gorillaz.
