From Sierra Leone, S.E. Rogie was a guitarist extraordinaire. Backing Rogie at the recording sessions was an ever changing band playing combinations of maracas, claves, congas, and an empty box which was struck like a bass drum. These recordings from 1960-69 are the sounds of the soul in an era when Africans were breaking the chains of colonialism. They are lost sounds that have been found again and the world of music is better for it.
