Overview

Secret Museum of Mankind: Music of East Africa, 1925-1948

If anyone is operating under the misconception that the all traditional African music is and has been characterized by drumming ensembles, they should listen to Music of East Africa from The Secret Museum of Mankind: Music of East Africa, 1925-1948. Though there are plenty of excellent drummers and percussionists grooving on this CD's 25 tracks, much of these songs emphasize solo and choral vocals, harmony, melody, and such stringed instruments as African lyres, harps, and lutes. Though the majority of the cuts are from Kenya, a number of cuts from such East African countries as Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Mozambique are also presented. Extensive liner notes, complete with photographs and an illustration, help listeners navigate their way through the CD's diverse musical tracks.
