YouTube Tuesday #7: The African Roots of Blues

This series of videos maybe a little grainy but they are some great shots and recordings of some of the traditional instruments, and sounds of Northern Ghana.  These instruments and sounds have been used for hundreds of years by these people and these videos are an attempt to share some of the early sounds that Blues may have built off of.  Special thanks to the Nana Kimati Dinizulu Archives for the footage and Africanbushdoctor for sharing these on youtube for all of us.

  1. As a group Promoting Music and Television from Ghana, I find your blog pretty interesting, “Daddy Lumba | Music In Ghana” I will keep checking for additions.
    Well written, thank you :-)
