IÑÉN are our hands
The most powerful tool we have
To generate transformations in the realm of matter
Ten is the whole number…
One hand washes the other
Five and five, the full decimality
Hands, wash a corpse
Hands, wash a newborn angel
[IÑÉN] in brame, native language of Mû Mbana, has a double meaning IÑÉN means 10 | IÑÉN means 2 hands
All songs writen and performed by Mû Mbana
Plays : Simbi, Bënsuni, Vocals and Percussion
After 20 years of collective experience and shared roads, Mû Mbana feels the need to express alone, for it, recovers an inedit recording made in 2011 in Portugal, produced by Jorge Cruz.
IÑÉN is more than an album, it is the start of a new stage, thoughtful, deep and slow.
IÑÉN are 10 songs, all of them composed and written by Mû, we hear his voice manly accompanied by the simbi, typical string instrument of the Balanta people, rare to see beyond the limits of Guinea Bissau where it originated.
Mû Mbana builds his own instruments.
