Christine Kamau - Conversations

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).
