George Mukabi – Furaha Wenye Gita

MISSISSIPPI RECORDS / OLIVIDO RECORDS

  • £23.99


George Mukabi is an almost mythical giant of African guitar, whose reinvention of acoustic fingerstyle quickly spread from western Kenya throughout East Africa, before his tragic death in 1963. 

Spellbinding guitar lines, sweet harmony vocals, every melody an instant classic, and a life story steeped in legend.
