About the album and the track “Modjadji”:
This track and the album are available for download on BandCamp: makramusic.bandcamp.com/album/transmigration
When I read about the South African droughts a few years ago, I was inspired to compose a piece to symbolize a rain dance ritual. The name “Modjadji” or Rain Queen refers to a line of queens of the Balobedu (Limpopo province, South Africa) believed to have the ability to control clouds and rainfall.
