I have just came to these publications recently. The have been available from the Smithsonian Music Library for purchase in mp3 format for a long time, but have just found they are also available on CD and LP now. I have many tracks already that are listed on them, and I can recommend them to anyone who are interested in acoustic Congolese guitar music of the 50's. If you browse the website I link at the third place, you can find many more interesting publications, too:

It's worth. It is full of interesting traditional melodies, a very good source for inspiration and learning. By the way, I just came to know that Manuaku is a big fan of this type of music as well.

Will defintely get it. Oh Manuaku,i can't be surprised,most professional guitarists sample everything and that's why they are versatile.
