Geoffrey Oryema – Spirit

Geoffrey Oryema’s music has been inspired by rock & roll, Western pop, traditional African music and world music. While he embraces so many kinds of musical genres, languages and universal themes, he has always kept his African heritage and Ugandan roots at the core of his musical identity.

He sings in the languages of his youth, Swahili and Acholi, the languages of the lost country, the ‘clear green land’ of Uganda, and he also sings in English and French.

Oryema earned his international reputation on the release of his second album, Beat the Border. He has collaborated with Peter Gabriel and others and was backed by French musicians including Jean-Pierre Alarcen (guitar) and Patrick Buchmann (drums, percussion, backing vocals), touring with WOMAD in Australia, the USA, Japan, Brasil and Europe.

In 1994 the band performed at Woodstock 94 celebrating the 25th anniversary of the legendary festival. In July 2005, he performed at the LIVE 8: Africa Calling concert in Cornwall and with 1 Giant Leap at the Live 8 Edinburgh concert.

Hear the eclectic blend of African, world, western pop and rock and roll through the powerful and haunting voice of Geoffrey Oryema. This great album features the powerful Omera John, a tribute to his brother and Spirits of My Father. This is a must have world music album!
