Running Back proudly presents Mim Suleiman. The Zanzibar-born and Sheffield-based singer/songwriter/performer made quite a name for herself on the Afro-beat stages of this world with her mixture of East African vocals and percussive traditions. Tungi is Mim Suleiman's debut full-length, which has her singing and writing in her native tongue, Swahili. Tungi is a mixture of all things ultramodern Afro beat, rhythm trax and futuristic pop music. Starting off with the uplifting vibe and beat of "Hebu," you will find boogie moments like "Nyuli" or "Bibi Na Mpu" (including a dub version) along the way, as well as quieter moments, like rhythmic adventures called "Flava" or the hi-life guitars of "Mingi" and "Haraka Haileti Baraka." Music for the world, led by the powerhouse that is Mim Suleiman and her lyrics about love and affection, freedom, oppression, unity and everyday life. Mesmerizing and addictive. Produced by Maurice Fulton.
