about

Project Kubatana is back with their second single "What Will Love Do"!

This song is a very interesting blend of many things: dancehall & pop, English & Shona lyrics, female & male vocals, acoustic and programmed instruments, and yet delivers a strong and soothing vibe.

The conscious lyrics ask very important philosophical questions about life and the way we live ours.

The duo, hailing from Switzerland and consisting of German Singer-Songwriter Kasi Smiles and Zimbabwean DJ RighT Nau recorded the song in Berlin at the Plane Earth Studios with Jon Moon. The song was written on Acoustic Guitar by Kasi, who recorded her parts first, then she and RighT Nau added their vocals. Later Jon Moon, who also produced the song, added drums, bass & keys.

After all the song takes you on a musical and lyrical journey from singer-songwriter guitars, over poppy keys to Dancehall drums.

lyrics

Been thinking ‘bout the way I reflect my ideals
If “One Love” was more than love for my own kind, than how
Do I make it visible to everyone
And what will love do, when I truly start seeing us
As one
As one, oh

I wonder if there’ll be a tomorrow
With togetherness and willingness to make a change
We got to be the change, genuine loving in every case
No matter the ethnicity we all need unity
It’s ok to be proud of from where you came
Don’t let it make you feel you should discriminate
The help you give someone and it goes a long way
The time is now, we need to stop procrastinating, cause
Tinombogara sei
Tichiona vanoshaya ngatibatsiraneyi
Kudanana sevanhu vamwe kunofadza sei
Tichidzidzana rudzi rwese tigotsvaga way
Vanazvo vape vasinawo each and every day
Zvisineyi neganda kana kuti unobvepi
Vanonyima vamakisei,vanyadzisei
Tinoti nhamo yemumwe hairambirwe sadza nekuti tese tese

Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe
Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe

Hatina hanya ne vamwe - zvekubatsirana tinozvigona sei
Hatina hanya ne vamwe - panotodiwa maziLove ekuseri
Hatina hanya ne vamwe - rudo rwunoyambutsa nekusingaperi
Hatina hanya vamwe, ne vamwe - mbijana mbijana tinofambira mberi

So if “One Love” in unconditional ways
Is truly what I stand for
I let my actions speak louder and humble my words
Put love in everything I do
And speak out for the good
Keep reminding myself to always choose love

Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe
Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe
Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe
Hatina hanya ne vamwe, vamwe, vamwe
