International » East African » Omutibo

A Kenyan style of music developed in the 1960s and 70s, omutibo is characterized instrumentally with two guitars and a fanta bottle rhythm section. One of the guitars plays high and the other guitar plays low, which is in part determined by the size of the instrument employed. Luhya rhythms and melodies are used while three-vocal parts are sung in harmony with one another.
