ZuluZuluu “What’s The Price”

Zulu

ZuluZuluu took to the web today to release their highly anticipated project, What’s The Price. A collective that is only beginning to show what they’re capable of bringing to the scene, ZuluZuluu’s sound is as unique as they come. Drawing inspiration from African traditions, jazz, R&B, electronic music, funk and rock & roll among other genres, Zuluzuluu is a true musical medley. The somber “Black Maybe” opens the project, but you should be dancing by the time you get to the SUPER funky “Fall Behind.” At only 7 tracks, What’s The Price breezes by in about 25 mins, while listening one gets the feeling that not a second is wasted. Check out What’s The Price below and click the link to purchase the album.
