Early Guitar Music From West Africa


Early Guitar Music From West Africa, 1927-1929 (Heritage HT CD 33)

from http://www.rootsandrhythm.com:

Charming collection featuring some of the earliest recordings of West African music made by the Zonophone Company in London, England between 1927 and 1929 featuring West African musicians living in England at the time. It’s mostly vocal music with guitar accompaniment – vocals are solos, duets or trios and in addition to guitar often features other instruments like kazoo, castanets, concertina or drums. Sound quality from these 75 year old recordings is superb and there are informative notes by Paul Vernon and full discographical info.
