From today we’ll have us a brand new American president.
Barack Obama has his roots in Kenya so I thought it would
be appropriate to post some Kenyan music today.
Abana Ba Nasery was a succesful trio from Bunyore, they
made their sweet but primitive sound, using only two
acoustic guitars and a Fanta bottle. The rhythm was created
by scraping the ribs of the bottle with a metal rod. When this
LP was made the recordings were already 30 years old.
I wonder if Obama speaks some Swahili too, in any case
this is great music. Listen to the Roots of Obama.
