...an original technique and eccentric style of guitar playing that has only been developed in Botswana

With all of a humanity reduced to a genome, who’d a thunk there’d be some sweet, folksy music being made in a remote corner of the world that almost no one had heard of until youtube came along?

This is a whole community of musicians from the heart of Africa playing guitar in a way most of us have never seen or thought possible—unless you happened to be following a handful of viral internet videos. And if you were and happened to read the comments below the videos, you would have seen the question: “Where can I buy this music?” The answer is: on Piranha Records on 27 April 2018 !

Head of The Vital Record, David Aglow, had no idea what he was in for when, back in 2009, he received an email from a friend with a youtube link. He thought it might be spam and almost didn’t bother to click. But he did and discovered a treasure trove of “Botswana Music Guitar.” Played in an eccentric style with a depth of expression rivaling any genre of music, this is folk from the dusty outskirts of the Kalahari Desert—a community of African country blues masters with a totally original technique. The left hand reaches up and over the neck of the guitar, instead of from behind and underneath.

David Aglow was so enthralled that —long story short — he searched for and found the person who recorded and posted these clips — Johannes Vollebregt — aka Bokete7 and proposed giving the artists a proper release. Then he found the artists and recorded and recorded and recorded.

This is a case of music lovers, field recordists and publishers joining forces to shed some light on a community of musicians more than worthy of international attention
