Benjamin A. Onyango narrates this poetic origin story of the Gikuyu people of Kenya in a knowing tone that resonates. This mythical tale, rendered in musical verse, defies genre. Onyango inhabits Ngugi, the chronicler of the story of Gikuyu and Mumbi, who become the mothers of the 10 Gikuyu clans. This tale of adventure and creation depicts clashes with ogres and epic challenges involving physical danger and love. Onyango uses his rich bass voice to lend a realistic atmosphere to this fantastical tale, which is both contemporary and ancient. R.O. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
