Untarnished: Jaka and "Golden Halo"

From Santa Fe, New Mexico comes our random tune for today. Jaka is an afro-pop funk dance band begun by Dan Pauli in the mid 1990s. They play ancient songs and modern compositions using a mix of contemporary and traditional instruments, such as mbira and marimba. The band has a fluid lineup around five core musicians, and also offers marimba and drumming classes at their Santa Fe studio. This song, Golden Halo, is from their 2014 album Glow.
