Описание

KISUMU chronicles the journey of an African musician.It tells the story musicians working in Kenya. A young musician is fighting to beat the odds in his own way in a town he knows so well. As a leader of music freaks in Kisumu's nefarious darkness, he encou-nters upsurging whirlpools of survival, exploitation, greed, feuds, and revenge. Despite all the hysteria, he makes a fairly good case for extraordinary achievement backmasking in heavy benga music. Kisumu is a lavish and eclectic, encyclopaedic, deeply felt knowledge of music and pop culture.

 

The '70s are endless sunny days of  dangerous encounters, mischief, fun, pranks, and awkward perils in the lakeland for Otis Dundos. In the '80s as a man-boy  he still tries to fit in. But he is more an archetype than flesh-and-blood youth. Performing with Nico Opija and KDF in Kondele gives him a beginning and a journey into music.

 

As a guitar student hitting all the required notes, Otis is the haunted genius. And KDF in Kondele is a training orchestra for demonology. He is desperate to leave Kondele's dingy clubs to reach for the future. He seems to realise he is not accomplished until he moves to Nairobi.  But the cold, cold heart of Nairobi's nefarious pop culture schools him into becoming a more spoiled artist. Returning to Kisumu with a new band, accompanied by queasy bandmates in the ranks of villainous neer-do-wells, he spirals down into the heart of Kisumu's darkness, encountering upsurging whirlpools of struggle, feuds, survival, greed, envy, competition,  and exploitation. How does he wind down the hysteria; somewhat, and make a fairly good case for extraordinary achievement backmasking in heavy benga music?  That's not the issue, the issue is that as famous as he is, Otis Dundos has more problems than a normal Kisumuan.  

 

Providing a catharsis through comedy, lancing the Kenyan lakeside city's moral boil with satire, KISUMU tells the story of ordinary men and women trying to live the Kenyan African dream. It is a story of humble beginning, awkward and misdirected fumbling and miraculous accomplishment.
