In trying to come up with a title for this album, I reflected on the Afrikan human experience which is filled with catastrophic stories.
From slavery, wars, the environment to basic food, shelter and clothing problems. Afrika is in a state of catastrophe.
However, anyone familiar with the music, cultures and traditions of
Afrika knows that what is called modern Afro-Pop music is essentially propelled by rhythm (drums, etc) and melody (voice, with the guitar often used as a lead instrument).
It is again a catastrophe that music/music education is at the bottom
on the list of curricula in Afrikan educational institutions. It is an AfrikanCatastrophy.
AfrikanGuitarStrophy is an attempt to open the discussion.
Enjoy Sweet Afrikan Kontry Muziki.
This piece is a perfert tale of a dedicated culturalist. Wanaku - keep it up.

Efforts like this one will go a long way to provide encouragement for the many talented African Musicians lost is the continent. The congas together with the acoustics move me to want to take some few merenge dance steps. Congratulations Wanaku.
Superb Effort - Congratulations

The more I listen to this music, the more I'm drawn into a very relaxed place. My 21 year old Flamenco guitar playing son loves it. Thanks Wanaku
What a wonderful piece!

WANAKU, what a great job and a surprise to me. You hit it just at the target. Brother, let's keep the light burning. Once more, a fantanstic piece. Congratulations and thank you for the hardwork. PA BALI.
This is just perfect.
I couldn't just stop listening to it. It is a well crafted piece with outstanding correlation which has characterized WANAKU's works. A lot of flare and color. The rhythm and harmony paints a clear picture of the high grass fields of British Cameroons where the music originates. Good job WANAKU.
