9 new albums almost finished

8 cd's worth of glorious music from Zambia coming soon - 'Chikunda/Nsenga/Soli/Cewa', 'The Complete Kalonda Band Recordings', 'Southern Province Mix', 'Leya Ceremony and Songs', 'Siyemboka Music', 'The Barotse Guitar', 'Silimba Kangombio Jazz', 'Drums, Vocals, and Sticks'. And 1 lp taken from these albums. 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 music - and meticulously mixed and mastered - 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.....in fact all music fans have to hear this.....

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

All albums will be released at the end of January.
