To my knowledge, the term “vai” refers to a very musically inclined tribe of people, or ethnic group in Africa, most specifically groups in the countries of Liberia and Sierra Leone. So in true Afrikaan fashion, Te’Amir, who has Ethiopian roots, crafted this organic beat with these folks in mind, would be my guess. Either way, I feel like dancing.
