I’m Not Here To Hunt Rabbits

This compilation captures that rarest of things in the 21st century - a truly unique and idiosyncratic contemporary regional genre, namely the country blues guitar of Botswana. The common thread is a playing style where the left hand approaches the fretboard from above the neck rather than from below. YouTube videos of several performers have gone viral, but this is the first time they’ve been presented on a physical format. This LP offers eleven tracks from various players, with a further eight on the accompanying download.

Ethio Stars / Tukul Band feat. Mulatu Astatke
Addis 1988

Mulatu Astatke’s international career has spiralled into serious recognition over the last few years, but this reissue reminds us how great he sounded in 1988. Addis 1988 is a studio date recorded with Ethio Stars and Turkul Band, with Mulatu’s original songs and arrangements sounding triumphant in the hands of these musicians. Reissue of a long out-of-print album, courtesy of Piranha Records.
