Furaha Wenye Gita – Happiness With Guitar

LP (Item 973826) Mississippi, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

George Muakbi's definitely got some happiness in his guitar here – a bright, lively style that dances along with the spare rhythms of the tunes – in a groove that's beautifully offset by the vocals of George and his partner! The music is relatively spare, but ushered in a new stylistic generation in Mukabi's native Kenya – and after all these years, there's a timeless quality to these tunes that really holds up. The main focus is often on George's deft work on acoustic guitar – notes that spin out strongly, and cascade in a mix of melody and rhythm – sometimes with just a slight bit of percussion in the background, and vocals traded back and forth in a nicely sing-song way. Titles include "Festo Amahaya", "Sengula Nakupenda", "Tom Itabale", "Jared Onyango", "Fuhara Wenye Gita", and "Bibi Mzuri Nyumbani".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
