V/A – Bulawayo Blue Yodel

Out of stock


A collection of beautiful Country-Western inspired music from 1950s Zimbabwe, South Africa and Kenya. Fingerpicking “omasiganda” troubadours, train car yodels, raw slide guitar, and haunting travel-weary ballads, all reissued for the first time from rare 78s. A heavy duty document of a nearly lost scene, and all the songs are all stunners to boot. Featuring the greats George Sibanda, Josaya Hadebe, Sabelo Mathe, Petrus Mntambo and more, with a 12″ booklet of deep research and full lyrics, packaged in old school tip-on covers. Co-released by our friends Olvido Records. Audio restoration and transfers by Michael Kieffer.
