Owiny Sigoma Band – Nyanza (Brownswood)

Nyanza_sCollaboration between two Kenyans from the Luo tribe, nyatiti master Joseph Nyamungu & percussionist Charles Owoko (who just died), & three British musicians. The group traveled around the Nyanza region of Kenya, setting up a mobile studio to capture jams, collect found sounds, and to try to capture the whole experience. Lots of amazing tribal-ethno-techno vibes! (Nyatiti is a 5 to 8-stringed plucked lyre.)
