Robbie Basho's music rises from deep spiritual pools. Dive in and find yourself transfigured. Listen and become a cave dwelling Hindu ascetic; an embroidered, Sufi sage; a weather changing medicine-man. Or, if you're lucky, you might become Basho himself: 12-string guitar wizard, transcendent singer, majestic composer, virtuosic whistler, and ecstatic channel. Robbie Basho, little known shaman of America the beautiful.
Between 1965 and 1984 Basho composed 16 records of highly innovative folk/world music. In the beginning of his career Basho worked alongside John Fahey to create a new guitar tradition, the "American Primitive".
Gnome Life has the great honor of re-issuing two of Basho's finest records which have been out of print since 1978/1979.
