'RECORDINGS FROM WESTERN KENYA 1930-1970' - The nyatiti is the eight stringed lyre of the Luo people of Western Kenya and is the best known traditional music in Kenya. This collection of restored and remastered recordings from the early and mid 20th century mark the first time that nyatiti music has been documented and made widely available to a worldwide audience. The driving beat of the nyatiti rings of far off styles of Western dance and techno music. The record features classic players such as Ogola Opot, who would go on to define the Nyatiti sound for the genre's popular resurgence in the 1970s and '80s. These recordings and the subsequent remastering process capture and bring new life to the rhythmic and trance like sound of the instrument.
