Dubophonic (Label) says:

"Enkang" means "homestead" in Maasai language. Maasai is one of the very few tribes who have retained most of their traditions, lifestyle and lore. "Enkang" is also the name of DubRaJaha's EP, which was recorded in the period from Autumn 2013 till Summer/Autumn 2014 in Arusha (Tanzania), Stone Town (Zanzibar, Tanzania), Wete (Pemba, Tanzania) and Moscow (Russia).

DubRaJah fuses a deep digital dub style with traditional African melodies and chants from the people of Maasai, Datooga, Hadza, Pemba and Zanzibar, incorporating also samples of Mad Professor on "Eyasi Dub" and "Zanzibar Dub". Each track has its own magic, from the ritual chants in "Laibon" to the mystical beauty of the "Ngezi" forest, cleansing the body, the mind and the soul.
