I got this track from Adam Solomon of Africa Guitar Summit fame almost a year ago and I just realized that I never posted it.

Adam is a genuinely nice guy whom I got to meet last summer when I heard classical rumba guitar playing in here in the subway in Toronto one morning and decided that I just had to meet the guy who playing that. I went over, introduced myself and he took the time to talk to me for almost 15 minutes in spite of the fact that I was literally just some guy off the street.

When we were done talking, I spent another 20 minutes just hanging around and listening to him play before buying the his latest release, the CD Mti wa maisha (Tree of Life) that he was there promoting.


Adam is a Juno Award winner (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys) who has also won several TAMA awards and has performed and toured extensively in Canada.

Back at the start of this year, he asked that I share this press release with an included free track for download, with all of you and I am just getting around to doing it now.

Here is an excerpt from the email from Adam that accompanied the track.

Here is a Track for H.E. President Barack Obama, you may forward it to many people as you like; Permission granted Adam Solomon.

We’ll also have it on our download site. For those who would like to support my music you can always check my info @: MySpace, my main website and on CDBaby

I have been playing this song for a long time. I didn’t want to record it, or perform live till when the elections were over and victory was declared. The first day I performed this song in the songs everybody went crazy. I made a lot of money in the subway*

Enjoy

    Obama is probably a good guy although i’ve not personally dealt with him some friends did when he was a senator and he treated them very well. As a president however he is even more impotent than Bush. For many years we will be pointing at his presidency and say we got there. Just like the Kalenjin although in poverty like the rest of us can look at Toroitich and say “tulifika upeo”.
    So did you ever get that Safari Ya Samburu ?
