By: Fanshawe, David
H-72066. Vinyl LP record in original sleeve. Very good vinyl with only a few minor, shallow scratches; in a near fine sleeve. “In this recording, [David Fanshawe has] tried to capture the spirit of a musical heritage now nearly extinct. The music on this album comes from a part of East Africa whose musical traditions remain largely unknown to the rest of the world. Particularly fascinating is the manner in which music and medicine are combined in the indigenous practice of witchcraft; music takes on the power of medicine, and medicine becomes associated with the healing sound of drums, interwoven with beautiful threads of melody.” Includes Ngoma ra mrongo, Mwari Initiation, Coconut Pickers Song, Matondoni Wedding, Marimba, Tuken Moral Songs, Giriama Spirit Dance, Kayamba Dance: Giriama Wedding, Alto Bung'o Horn, Akamba Witch Doctor, Pokot Witch Doctor, Pokot Dance, Song of Dawn, Lukuji, Nyatiti, and Funeral Dance. Dust jacket present.
