The pioneering Congolese guitarist best known for the song "Masanga," this is the first compilation ever dedicated to JEAN-BOSCO MWENDA. Perhaps the greatest influence on central and eastern African guitarists, Jean-Bosco created a totally unique approach to the acoustic guitar in the 1950s, which caught like wildfire across the continent. Featuring 12 rare songs of beautiful, complex fingerstyle guitar & Mwenda's warm voice, and 2 beloved classics - all restored from original 78 RPM discs. Includes an insert with full lyric translations!
