The Rough Guide To African Roots Revival

Various

Rough Guide, RGNET1269, 2012

Includes bonus CD by Kenge Kenge

This Rough Guide spotlights the front-runners of an explosive revival of African roots music. Listen to world-class artists, such as Staff Benda Bilili and the Bedouin Jerry Can Band, mix it up by infusing traditional sounds with the ultra modern, and by using ingenious homemade instruments, many of which are built from junk-yard materials. These are the sweet sounds of a movement which has not simply preserved, but truly reinvented musical genres with outstanding results.   http://www.worldmusic.net
