2004 release. Singer/songwriter/guitarist George Sibanda from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, was in effect sub-Saharan Africa's first music star, discovered by Hugh Tracey in 1948. Alas, he could not cope with fame and fortune and had drunk himself to death by the end of the '50s. A legendary figure, here finally is his exceptional guitar-picking coupled with his generous voice and happy-go-lucky songs. This wonderful collection of recordings by Hugh Tracey comprises 24 tracks, including the worldwide hit "Guabi Guabi." Includes a 16-page booklet.
