Ouganda. Aux sources du Nil

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, February 25, 2014 Under
This album is a testament to the stylistic diversity of Ugandan music. A diversity due both to the cultural mix of bantu, sudanic and nilotic and to the constant immigration from neighbouring countries

Ocora scores again with this release of Ugandan music. In researching a programme for the Hong kong public radio station, RTHK Radio 4, I came across this disc and I have programmed several pieces from it. What I am particularly pleased with is the variety of genres, styles, and instruments--the recording includes drumming with chant, a thumb piano solo, an ungodly cacaphony of 8 horns that MUST be heard to be believed, a fantastically cheerful welcome song with a choir and ensemble of thumb pianos, and much more. The recording quality is very good--this is a terrific addition to any world music library.
