- Tonga Anthem Remix Feat. Damba Students Welcome
Dear Damba Students & Tonga Community – Letter of Appreciation
Your voices were angelic and your enthusiasm inspired me to mix two completely different Tonga songs, into one single remix filled with celebration and hope. The result, an uplifting house music track that started off with the robust croaks from the midnight frogs in Squamish BC, Canada and moved to the Damba Students Welcome at school, recorded in Zimbabwe, Africa. Also, it was important to mix the Tonga Anthem into the song to marry the harmonies together, unite these sounds, as you are united in your school. I like to combine my culture as an Aboriginal Woman, into all the music I make because it contributes to the solidarity of my lineage and community, whom I love very much. I hope you love listening to this track as much as I loved producing it. Thank you for allowing me to feature your bright smiles and pleasing voices. Believe in Yourself!
Your friend in music, DJ Kwe (Meaning DJ Native Woman – Pronounced DJ Kway).
