African Guitar

African Guitar (Solo Fingerstyle Guitar Music). For Guitar (Fingerpicking). Boxed, Solos. Vestapol. African. Multiple Levels. DVD. Duration 60 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.13017DVD).

This DVD offers a rare view into the rich textures of African fingerstyle guitar music. It was recorded by the famed cultural anthropologist Gerhard Kubik between 1966-1993. These are audio-visual field recordings from isolated African villages to the gardens of Europe presenting some of the legends of this style: Mwenda Jean Bosco, Faustino Okello, Pierre Gwa, Daniel Kachamba and others. The roots of American blues guitar techniques are evocative sounds and rhythms of African music adapted to solo fingerstyle guitar. 26 songs are included. Detailed booklet giving historical, musical and 15 biographical perspectives.
