    Track taken from the album "Exile". This album is now available as part of the Real World Gold series - http://realworldrecords.com/gold/

    Another landmark Real World record from 1990, Exile informed the world of the struggles of Ugandan singer-songwriter Geoffrey Oryema. Exiled at a young age after the suspicious death of his government minister father, Geoffrey’s songs are a resilient riposte to a life forced upon him, as well as an unconfined celebration of the culture of his homeland. A statement of poise, gravity and elegance, Exile merges both the personal and the political, all narrated by that gently persuasive voice. Contributors include Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno.
    “A quietly startling record, best heard way past midnight when a troubled world seems to offer no quarter” – Entertainment Weekly
