Various Ugandan Artists
Music from Uganda 1: traditional (Caprice, Sweden)

These recordings were made by a team of Swedish technicians using digital equipment. And they come at a crucial time when Ugandan music is enjoying a cultural revival at home. After many years in a cultural vacuum brought by the wars in the 1980s, Ugandan artists are performing again at the local and national level... Volume 1 opens with the esoteric traditional cattle song from Moroto county in the north east. This gives way to the rhythmic laraka-raka youth dance from Acholiland to the north. Later on, one gets the full flavour of the hip-swinging bakisimba traditional music from central Uganda. - RootsWorld

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
