Artiste: Orchestra Irangira
Reviewed by: Martin Bishop
Ansila is a love song written by a 70’s music band Orchestra Irangia. This song was probably the most popular song at the time! It tells a story of a love relationship gone wrong.
Irangira here toyed with romantic lyrics in addition to the hard social issues they had plied many years before. Bundles of years later, this song is still played and enjoyed by many folks especially those who frequent various bars and a hotel that features (igisope) old school live bands.
Many people especially old and middle-aged people don’t seem to ‘feel’ youngster’s music, so they resort to going back to the days when music touched hearts, healed wounds with useful massages. The good news is, today karahanyuze (old school music) is available in most music stores across the country.
