One of our premieres today comes from Sydney-based afro-beat jazz band True Vibenation and their single ‘The World Is Ours’. The enthusiastic Afro-Australian trio prides themselves of on DIY process that enables them to fuse an array of soundscapes inspired by Latin-beats, house music, synths, live instrumentation, and even hip-hop. “'The World Is Ours' is about our passion for what unifies us all as human beings and the beat is in a style we like to call 'Afro-Bounce' which is a mash up of traditional African music and modern Australian electronic beats music,” the band tells AFROPUNK.
True Vibenation takes the Silver Hayes at Glastonbury Festival on June 25. Listen to ‘The World Is Ours’ down below.
