Exile

by: Geoffrey Oryema

Oryema plays the nanga, a zither described as having seven strings, though some have one string that runs seven times across the instrument making them hell to tune. This is half of a terrific CD -- wonderful except when Brian Eno and co. get in on the act and undercut it. You can program out the well-meaning-but-blah bits -- unless you disagree anyway, in which case all is well. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
