2008 release. Englishman Hugh Tracey (1903-1977) dedicated his life to recording African music. During an era that no one else took African music seriously at all, HT crisscrossed central, eastern and southern Africa, recording what he found. He foresaw that much of the music would disappear through urbanization and outside influences. In so many cases, we are lucky to have his recordings of so much amazing music -- no one else recorded it. His archive constitutes the musical memory of half a continent. This final album features one star track from each of the 21 CDs in the series, plus as a bonus, there are six tracks from the original session by guitarist Jean Bosco Mwenda. Housed in a 6-page digipak.
