Created at the Kampala community music hub Boutiq Studios.
The Villaelvin collective includes percussionist Omutaba, rappers Hakim and Swordman Kitala, Welsh producer / sound artist Elvin Brandhi, and producers Oise and Don Zilla.
Head Roof was conceived when Brandhi travelled to Kampala, to work with artists from Ugandan-based arts collective Nyege Nyege.
The album draws on field recordings from Evangelist churches and the surrounding swamps, mixed alongside warped drums and rapping from Hakim and Swordman Kital.
