We’re joined once again by Olugbenga Adelekan to listen through your incredible takes of Iwe Kiko, a traditional Yoruba children’s song about remembering tradition in a modernised world.
If you haven't already, we really recommend you go and listen to part one where Olugbenga introduces the tune to us.
Listen: Part 1 of Iwe Kiko
Also, check out Olugbenga and Seye Adelekan’s project Obalende Sector here.
/// YOUR TAKES ///
We’ve had an incredible response, with 11 takes in the playlist. A huge thanks to everyone who submitted a take - this month we’ve got: Kev Pritchard; Vanishing Faces; Julian Hayman; Mr Cat Hair; Matt Milton; Eyeless Chalonstone & The Goodnight Mistress; asymptotes; Richard Toller; Liz Hassack.
/// JOIN THE COMMUNITY ///
We’ve set up a group on Facebook for the Old Tunes Fresh Takes community to share ideas, submit tracks for feedback and just generally geek out about trad tunes and music production. We’ve had some great conversations already over the last month, so whether you’re thinking about submitting a take or just want to go deeper between episodes then join us!
Thinking of submitting? Read our quick guide on how to submit your fresh take.
/// COMING UP ///
Next up, we’re chatting with Martin Green (Lau/Eliza Carthy) who’s inviting you to take on Lyke Wake Dirge, an ancient funeral poem telling of the soul’s journey into the beyond.
Part one comes out next Monday 30 August. If you want to get a headstart, you can find example scores, chords and lyrics here.
