Extract of the DVD in which Roxy talks about his career, in particular about the time he replaced Manuaku in Zaiko and how he got his nickname, Nyawu.

Bencuri, I have seen similar DVDs from Jeannot Bel Musumbu (who I think produced this one). Are they worth the investment in terms of teaching the techniques? I saw someone on Amazon lamenting that they do not even indicate the chord they are holding as they play.

I think these dvd's are best suited for advanced learners not beginners. Jeannot Bel has also produced another one for a good friend and soloist Renato Mondele formerly of Defao's Big Stars,the tutorial is out soon.

I think JEannot Bel's DVD is very useful. There are some parts of it uploaded to youtube, he is showing how to play full sebens from Zaiko repertoire, I found them very good. I will get that DVD. I don't think indicating chords is a concern. These are solos in question, so the indentification of chords is a minor problem. I think it is much more inportant in what frets you ahve to play and with what fingers. In that sense Jeannot's DVD is very informative.

This Kenyan guy also released a tutorial DVD, it must be very useful, too:

When I talked to Mondele, it was not clear to me whether his DVD will be a reissued version of Jeannot's DVD, or it will be a new tutorial supervised by Jeannot?

This short extract is already showing good things. That concert that is shown from the TV was a great concert, it is promising that Roxy shows tricks from the songs played there. I wonder if he is showing full songs from that concert. Anyway, I also wonder when that concert will find it's way to a DVD.
