The pioneering Congolese guitarist best known for the song “Masanga,” this is the first compilation ever dedicated to Jean-Bosco Mwenda! Perhaps the greatest influence on central and eastern African guitarists, Jean-Bosco created a totally unique approach to the acoustic guitar in the 1950s, which caught like wildfire across the continent.
