Description
These world-class artists mix it up by infusing traditional sounds with the ultra-modern, often using ingenious instruments made from junk-yard materials. These are the sweet sounds of a movement that has not simply preserved, but truly reinvented musical genres (as in improvised jams on amplified thumb pianos or mbira). The bonus CD is by the 11-piece Kenyan group Kenge Kenge, whose syncopated music pairs traditional lyres with modern instruments.

"Since the mid-'90s the rich musical landscape of Africa has gained a higher profile around the world in general. The Rough Guide to African Roots Revival taps into this movement, collecting tracks from musicians who draw connections from African music traditions to blues (Malian lute player Bassekou Kouyate and his Ngoni Ba band, Ghanaian chordophone players Seprewa Kasa), funk (Congolese rumba reinventors Staff Benda Bilili), and even progressive electronic sounds (Sinai Desert found object ensemble Bedouin Jerry Can Band, electrified thumb piano innovators Konono No. 1)."All Music Guide
