Archival Recordings from Kenya

Archival Recordings from Kenya

Field recordings, tribal rituals, lullabies, and songs from East Africa. Annotated.

Part of a series featuring music and field recordings from world coffee origins, focusing on historical or cultural expressions/anomalies rather than popular western forms or expectations. I hope this demonstrates a value beyond the black gold we extract from these diverse land and people.
