It was along about that time that Blind Lemon Jefferson came through, and he stayed around there about a month. He stayed with the other colored fellows and they worked on the railroad there; he'd just sing and play to entertain the men in the work camp. I think that right about there I started on the guitar - Hobart Smith recalls Lemon in Virginia, c. WWI, from Blacks, Whites and Blues by Tony Russell

Guitar from Papua New Guinea
« on: August 17, 2016, 11:42:37 AM »
I thought some of you might enjoy the beautiful sounds of the Kemuli String Band from Papua New Guinea. I discovered them after checking out the 3 disc Folkways release 'Bosavi: Rainforest Music from Papua New Guinea' from my local library, expecting something quite different than what the Kemuli String band offers.

One of my favorite tracks


And more on the release:

It's getting irritating that europeans are unable to see these videos.

Agreed!

There are browser plug-in proxies to get around regional controls. They're pretty easy to use.

Hi Harry:

I don't use  them, but a couple of friends do. They prevent the source, it your case YouTube, from identifying your computer's location, so restrictions don't apply. It's software that you download and install that works with different platforms, OS and browsers.
