Absolutely beautiful disc, from the legend George Mukabi, served up on a deluxe 12 track LP by Mississippi Records –

An almost mythical giant of African guitar, whose reinvention of acoustic fingerstyle quickly spread from western Kenya throughout East Africa, before his death in 1963.

Spellbinding guitar lines, sweet harmony vocals, every melody an instant classic, and a life story steeped in legend.

Co-released by Raw Music International and Olvido Records, This 12 song LP comes packaged in a deluxe spot-color jacket, with a 12-page full color booklet featuring an oral history by Mukabi’s family and peers, and lyrics in English and Swahili.

…..oooooph! So good.
