1999 release. A musical portrait of the lesser-known Kanyok people, their various direct and indirect Luba neighbors of southern Congo and the urbanizing Katanga mine culture. Amazing xylophones, likembe thumb-pianos of immense beauty, great grooves, gourd singing, the first Katanga guitars -- what richness and diversity! These are the roots of Kasai music. Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Includes a 20-page booklet.
