Fronted by powerful vocalist Zami Mdingi, CODA Africa combines electric strings (violin and cello by Galina Juritz and Carol Thorns) with saxophone (Judy Brown) and DJ (DJ LuvChild). Their music traverses different genres from Classically-inspired ballads to Electro-Swing, Dub Step, Reggae and Hip Hop.
CODA Africa recently released their new album ‘Disclosure’ – a collection of songs based on stories divulged by members of the band. ‘
We wanted to tell our secrets and share the many experiences we’ve had together in the years we’ve travelled and performed as CODA’, ‘One had to be careful what you confessed to band members in the last year – there was always a strong possibility it would become a song on the new album!’
– says front singer, Zami Mdingi.
CODA Africa was nominated for 2 All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) in 2014 for ‘Most Promising Artiste in Africa’, and ‘Best African-Electro Act’ alongside Goldfish and Mi Casa. Listen to Coda Africa single Fatboy here: https://soundcloud.com/coda-africa/fat-boy
