Misiani, D.O. & Shirati Jazz - Piny Ose Mer / The World Upside Down Piny Ose Mer / The World Upside Down
World Used - LP ORB 046 Globestyle
1989 Original. “Misiani Has Been A Top Exponent Of Benga Music - A Strikingly Rhythmic Music Forged From Elements As Diverse As The Bodi Music Of Luo Women And The Fingerpicked Guitar Style Of The Congo - Since His First Recordings In 1967. Keeping A High Profile Throughout The '70s And '80s, He Translated The Initial Acoustic Format Of Benga To An Amplified Music By Way Of A Battery Of Electric Guitars, Basses, And Eventually Some Electronic Drums. As A Result, The Traditional Dance Music Of Western Kenya's Luo People Was Brought To Wider African And International Audience. Misiani's Brand Of Benga Features A Bobbing Beat, Singing Unison Guitar Lines, Deep And Complex Bass Accompaniment, And Soft Harmony Vocals. Some Have Likened His Style To A Mix Of West African Highlife, Cameroonian Makossa, And Even Some Congolese Soukous. The Music Heard On This 1989 Misiani Album Shores Up The Claim While Also Revealing A Uniquely Flowing And Airy African Beat Sound. Supported By His Shirati Jazz Band's Cadre Of Three Guitarists, Two Bassists, One Drummer, And Three Vocalists, Misiani Handles Lead Guitar And Vocals On The Eight Consistently Up-Tempo Originals Here. Amidst The Festive Weave Of Music, Misiani Lyrics Take In Everything From A Faith Healer Who Once Cured Him To Political Figures And Tour Travelogues. An Essential Title For Fans Of Contemporary African Music.” – Stephen Cook, All Music Guide... more details
