2001 release. In the new urban culture that invented itself during the '50s in the copper mining towns of Katanga Province in southern Congo and on the Copperbelt in northern Zambia, the guitar became an important status symbol and local styles quickly developed. This also happened in the big southern African railway connection of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. This collection of recordings by Hugh Tracey is an exciting document, the emergence of a new sound -- a must for all fans of African guitar. Includes a 24-page booklet.
