10 new albums being mixed and mastered

9 cd's worth of glorious music from Zambia - 'The Barotse Guitar', 'Chikunda/Nsenga/Soli/Chewa', 'The Complete Kalonda Band Recordings', 'Leya Ceremony and Songs', 'Mutanuka and Syasiya', 'Siyemboka Music', 'Western Province Traditional', 'Southern Province Mix', 'Silimba Kangombio Jazz'. Recorded by Michael Baird in 2014, 2016, and 2018, plus some re-discoveries recorded back in 1996, 2002, and 2008. This is a major work! All this perfectly honest - and meticulously mixed and mastered - music will lighten up your way and your day. Fans of both Congolese and Zimbabwean music have to hear this, so they can adjust their perspective.....

And a duo album 'Ferrari Safari', by Michael Baird and Italian percussionist Pino Basile! Pino is many things - a wizard on the tamburella and all things tambourine, a classically trained percussionist, a jazz musician, a circus performer, inventor of the cupaphone. Together their music reaches into the relatively unchartered realm of African abstractions.......

All albums due for release in October.
