Biography

Malawi-born Tony Bird was effecting a mixture of modern Western musical styles with traditional African ones ten years before Paul Simon was ever heard on mbaqanga. Though his excellent '70s recordings went ignored, the surge of interest in African pop in the late '80s got him back in the studio for "Sorry Africa" (Philo 1135) in 1990. ~ William Ruhlmann
