Olima Anditi is a blind guitarist who's famous throughout Western Kenya. He travels the trucking routes that run along Lake Victoria, playing haunting, gorgeous tunes passed down through generations of artists. A local legend, his Luo tales of love, morality and politics are widely known and loved. This intimate session, recorded at Olima's rented room in Kisumu, Kenya in 2010, is now released on vinyl for the first time. Included is a 12-page booklet featuring an essay on the controversial origins story of Olima Anditi and lyrics in English and Luo. This is a co-release with Raw Music International.
