Item ID: 451480

Repress! An almost mythical giant of the African guitar, whose reinvention of the acoustic fingerstyle quickly spread from western Kenya throughout East Africa, before his tragic death in 1963. Spellbinding guitar lines, sweet harmony vocals, every melody an instant classic, and a life story steeped in legend - it's all here. This 12-song LP comes in a deluxe spot-colour jacket, with a 12-page full colour booklet featuring an oral history by Mukabi's family and peers, and lyrics in English and Swahili. This is a co-release with Raw Music International and Olvido Records.
