Secular Music from Uganda

Uganda 1950, '52, recordings by Hugh Tracey

Twinned with our album of Ugandan court music SWP 008, this cd features music by the people for the people, for their own enjoyment – secular, worldly music free of any court constraints. Likembes, harps, horn ensembles, flutes, etc. Become a convert to the lyrics of the opening track: 'All things in nature love each other, The lips love the teeth, The beard loves the chin, And all the little ants go br-r-r-r together!'

Pulp 2004 (USA): "Over an hour of pure joy, here we have the undisputed roots of all things groove. The repetitive precision on these recordings exposes folk music masters with the power to conjure body movement from a coma victim."
