Strut present Mabanzo - the debut solo album by Congolese vocalist, Juanita Euka. A familiar face to many from London's vibrant live music scene over the last decade, Juanita has fronted London Afrobeat Collective's dynamic live shows, the fusions and cross-pollinations of Animanz and maverick Cuban collective Wara. On Mabanzo (meaning 'Thoughts'), Juanita brings her many and varied musical influences into play and pulls no lyrical punches. Killer dancefloor single 'Na Lingi Mobali Te' is pure contemporary Congolese guitar gold, 'Mboka Moka' channels '80s boogie and Quincy horn stylings on an anthem for personal struggle and 'Ba�o de Oro' brings a heavy Afro-Cuban workout. Elsewhere, the epic ballad 'Sue�os de Libertad' is an impassioned call for freedom and the lilting 'For All It's Worth' champions love over materialism.
