Christine Kamau - Conversations

From This Is Africa Wed Dec 26 2012, 14:00:00

Female horn players aren't that common in Africa, so we were thrilled to hear about Kenyan afro-jazz trumpeter/composer Christine Kamau aka The Jazzist, here performing "Conversations" from her debut album "This Is For You" (she can also play the trombone and the alto-saxophone). Love her tone on this; goes straight to the soul. What we'd like to see now is a video for Baba Afrika ! , the track dedicated to Hugh Masekela.
