EUCD1996 - Tribal Dance from East Africa

CD Title: Tribal Dance from East Africa

Artist(s): Bomas of Kenya

CD Code: EUCD1996

Tracks: 13

Playing Time: 57:15 min

Booklet Info in: English, Spanish, French, German


Tribal dances and songs from various regions of Kenya, accompanied on traditional instruments, such as kayamba (raft rattle), mumanga (thumb piano), isanu (side-blown gourd trumpet) irimba (thumb piano), bells, marimba and more.

In this recording, we have tried to feature Kenya's early music heritage up to present time, which has not as yet reached many parts of the world. From one tribe to the other - in such varied songs of marriage, witchcraft, circumcision, dances, and mourning over their great leader's death, and praising their warriors after winning battles.

We made sure that the beauty of this music (performed by Bomas of Kenya) was not "commercialised". Musical phrases were not paraphrased for the sake of expediency, nor will you find monotonous repetitions. The balance struck between these two is what makes this album a must for lovers of world music.
