The Remixinhambane Story

story1

story2

How, when and where did all this start?

It all started as Paulo Vumo rushed into Studio Bom Dia in March 2010 in Inhambane, Mozambique with his new song „Ndza ku Rhanza“ and wanted to record it with me. I was just about to leave for the airport to go back to Austria after my holiday. As we had no time to produce the song, I decided to record the vocals with a metronome click in order to finish it when I got back to Austria. Upon my return, I gave the vocal tracks to various musicians and producers and after some time I got two different versions of the song back. They were fully arranged with drums, bass, keys, etc. and of course Paulo´s voice carrying the song.

Project idea

As there are a lot of musical talents in Inhambane, we thought it might be very inspiring for musicians and producers all over the world to receive fresh material for remixing and arranging. Therefore, my friend Roland and I decided to make a project out of this. From our own experience as musicians we know how exciting it can be to have access to a clear vocal track and to use and combine it to create something new.

We offer you complete vocal tracks of songs by artists from Inhambane for you to remix and get inspired by African vibes.

What do we want to achieve?

We want to connect talents from Mozambique with musicians and producers for a mutual exchange of creative and musical ideas. The enthusiasm captured in a vocal track can be very inspiring for producers and musicians in our Western culture, as it is great to collaborate over geographic frontiers with no musical boundaries. The African artists on the other hand, can transport their music into other spheres and come into contact with the knowledge and possibilities of distant producers and musicians. The final result for both sides is a truly unique song created in a special way.

What happens with the remixed songs?

  • Our goal is to release a CD with a selection of remixes produced by our contributors
  • We will promote your remixes via our extensive network. We are looking for labels, distributors and radio stations to spread the music. 
  • If you have any ideas feel free to contact us

Legal notice: We happily offer you the material for downloading and remixing, but please note that it is copyrighted by Remixinhambane. Please refer to the rules in the FAQ using this material, commercial use is prohibited in any case.
