On the visually stunning HOLY GHOT private imprint, these two Gospel gems from Keyan-native David Waciuma are a small but incredible blip of pure garage rock in an otherwise uneventful musical career. Waciuma, clearly influenced by his travels & studies throughout Africa & The Americas in the 1960s, incorporated an exquisite symmetry with the heady sounds of the era's garage and boogaloo, but it's only when he switched from playing secular music to gospel in the mid-70s did this incredible recording come out. Super inspiring piece of colliding cultures & theological virtues rocking together.
