Kenyan Songs & Strings: Kenya

Hugh Tracey Kenyan Songs & Strings Kenya
$15.99 New
 
This item is not available at this time.
 





2006 release. The selection of music here is comprised of a cappella choirs and songs accompanied by string instruments. Except for two guitar tracks and one oud track, the string instruments are all lyres -- chepkongo, kipukandet, thum, litungu. The strummed lyres sound very guitar-like, at times positively post-punk, and then the wonderful buzzing bass sound of the plucked thum, with strings made of cow tendons, and an array of beautiful traditional vocal styles. Includes the famous song "Chemirocha." Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Includes a 24-page booklet.
