Lets start with one of the contributions from a friend in music who recently did a great service to the Luobaniyan community. He has many tastes that overlap with the tastes of undersigned ministre...
And we were very happy to receive, these wonderful to work with files. Clear photos and good digital likenesses of the audio.
This also appears to be a growing trend, that several of the followers and friends of Luobaniya have started to suggest sharing from their own vaults and collections, and it is becoming one of the greater pleasures of sharing the music with you! A true bonus for all of us!
I am thrilled at the possibility of finally hearing some of the music that I have searched for in vain over the years, and many of the "white whales" are beginning to come in sight! What bliss!
Anyhow lets jump the lines a bit and start with this Bärenreiter. The Nigeria I, so we can get a little earlier to the Nigeria III - and enjoy the Igbo that someone is eagerly waiting for!
