Varios Artistas - Usiende Ukalale: Omutibo From Rural Kenya

"Omutibo", an exclusively Kenyan acoustic guitar style, was invented by George Mukabi in the late 1950s, and quickly adapted by its neighbors in a region that proved to be truly fertile for guitarists. In 2016, Cyrus Moussavi (RawMusic International) was established along the banks of the Yala River to document the songs of the old days. Recorded in locations and courtyards, these are the songs and stories of a golden age of Kenya on the verge of Independence, beautifully resurrected by the composers themselves, more than 50 years later. With presentations and interviews by: JohnstoneOukoMukabi, ShemTube, FanuelAmimo, Jimmy Bongo, SukumaBinOngaro, Peter Akwabi, ZachariahOmufumbwa, OmariMachio and JohaniasKiunya.
