Where Else Would I Be?

Mississippi

One time pressing of 500 copies. Olima Anditi is a blind guitarist known throughout Western Kenya. He travels the trucking routes along Lake Victoria, playing haunting, gorgeous tunes passed down through generations of artists. He's a local legend, and his Luo tales of love, morality and politics are widely known and loved. This intimate session, recorded at Olima's rented room in Kisumu, Kenya in 2010, is being released for the first time on vinyl. Packaged in a deluxe spot -colored jacket with an 8 page booklet featuring an essay on the convoluted origin story of Olima Anditi and lyrics in English and Luo.
