1 - FRANK AND HIS SISTERS - FRANK AND HIS SISTERS - (LP) 
MISSISSIPPI


The worlds first collection of gorgeous pop songs from FRANK AND HIS SISTERS a family band from Moshi, Tanzania. Formed in the early 1950s by FRANK HUMPLICK, THECIA CLARA and MARIA REGINA, the trio recorded and toured throughout East Africa and issued a string of instant classics, capturing fans with their beautifully harmonized singing, clever lyrics, and Franks stunning guitar work. Imagine the fingerstyle finesse of John Fahey with a pure pop melodicism, combined with the family harmony of groups like The Carter Family, The Roches, and The Beach Boys, set in the golden age of Tanzanian music! Previously only heard on painfully rare 78 rpm discs and Tanzanian oldies radio, this album collects the trios finest songs, lovingly restored and remastered. We love this music so much that in late 2018 we traveled to Tanzania to meet Franks family and collaborate on this album. The result is a colorful 8-page booklet featuring complete lyrics in English, Swahili and Chaga, as well as previously unpublished photographs, extensive interviews and anecdotes, and a biography by Tanzanian musician and radio host John Kitime. All tracks fully licensed from the Humplick family.
