This is the famous Katanga guitar sound, as recorded by Hugh Tracey, based on the traditional likembe lamellaphone music of the various Luba peoples and their neighbours, who went to work in the mines and, as a result of this urbanisation, embraced 'modernism' by buying guitars. Also included are three rumba tracks from Stanleyville (Kisangani), where there was a laid-back atmosphere with white and black people dancing together in a flourishing nightlife, exceptional for the Belgian Congo. Compiled are tracks from the CD's 'Origins Of Guitar Music', 'Kanyok And Luba', and 'The Very Best Of Hugh Tracey'. Two tracks are previously unreleased by SWP.
