    Default RIP Ayub Ogada

    Kenyan singer-songwriter Ayub Ogada was a busker on the Northern Line when he came to Real World's attention in the late 80s. And this 1993 set - his only record for the label - proved that it was a meeting of minds, with his disarmingly simple arrangements, allowed to hang there unadorned, making a lasting impression. Simply backing himself (albeit with virtuosic ease) on an East African lyre called a nyatiti, this record introduced Ayub as a performer of great charm, his warm vocals never leaving centre stage.
