V/A - Don't Sleep: Omutibo From Rural Kenya LP
A compilation of uniquely Kenyan acoustic guitar songs, recorded in the homes and yards of Luhya musicians. In 2016, Cyrus Moussavi set out to learn the origins of Omutibo, a playing style invented by George Mukabi and adapted by his neighbors in a region that proved to be truly fertile for guitarists. These are the songs and stories of a golden era Kenya on the brink of independence, beautifully resurrected by the songwriters themselves over 50 years later. LP comes packaged in a deluxe metallic spot-color jacket, with an 8-page full color booklet featuring interviews, photographs, and lyrics in English and Luhya. Co-released by Raw Music International and Olvido Records.

Allesamt mit den grossartigsten Covers überhaupt. Mississippi Records-Releases werden nur auf Vinyl und oft in kleinsten Stückzahlen veröffentlicht.

All with the greatest covers ever. Mississippi Records are released on vinyl only and often in small quantities.
