Bring On The Nubians

Short but sweet today. Here are a couple of ace tracks from Ali Hassan Kuban, the late Godfather of Nubian music. Born near Aswan in 1929, he found fame and fortune after his family moved to Cairo. These selections come from an album called "Walk Like a Nubian", released in 1994. He died seven years later.
