V.A. / LISTEN ALL AROUND, the golden age of central and east african music


またまたイイ仕事ですね、Dust to Digital !!  ヒュー・トレイシーによる現地録音をリマスター&コンパイル!が、オランダ  SWP でのCD化とは微妙に重ならないと思いますよ。黎明期コンゴレーズ・ルンバの影響も、そこかしこに聴いて取れますが、後年のケニアはルオー人のベンガ・ミュージックやタンザニアのミジキ・ワ・ダンシにつながって行く感覚、あるいは、いかにもキクユっぽい繊細なギター演奏など、東アフリカ / スワヒリ圏ポピュラー音楽の開花期の充実を、ストリングス・バンド&コロニアルな吹奏楽バンドのイキイキとした演奏で楽しめること請け合いましょう!加えて 珍しい写真満載の 英文 84p BOOK も実にゴーカだし、参考になりますね(って、まだ1行も読んでませんけど)!ダル・エス・サラーム・ジャズ・バンドやムェンダ・ジャン・ボスコ、ヴィクトリア・バンドなど、名の知られた音楽家、バンドも並びますが、あんまり聞いたことのないアーティスト、バンド名がヴィヴィッドな音質で素晴らしい歌唱&演奏を繰り広げまくってくれるところ、まだまだ知られざるアフリカの50年代、まったく、嬉しくなってくるじゃないですか!
