El Mukuka sheds light on new single, international collabo


El Mukuka has shared the story of his latest single and musical odyssey.

Mukuka says the new project, which he kickstarted a few years ago, promises to feature international talent.

“I started working on ‘Keep My Heart Safe’ back in 2019 with

Brazilian singer-songwriter Brabara Schucko. The two of us met as students back in 2012 at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

“The chorus was the first thing we developed and the only thing that stuck from our initial songwriting sessions three years ago,” he says.

Over time and through inviting more collaborators to the table, I gained more clarity around my vision for the song in relation to the verse melodies, overall song structure and production.

He narrated that the elements of “Keep My Heart Safe’ only started to come together and make sense in a coherent way earlier this year.

Mukuka says despite the pandemic, the project single was dealt with creativity from start to finish, ensuring that quality was the key outcome.

“By that time several new writers had joined the team and some integral contributions had been made. The entire project from start to finish was done remotely and as the team grew so did the challenges of collaborating from a distance and through a global pandemic.

“The team consisted of writers from the USA, Germany, South Africa and Zambia,” he says.

However, looking back he felt so grateful for the long creative process that he underwent through with this song.

“It’s a three year journey that taught me a lot about fusion music techniques, different collaboration approaches and patience,” he says
