Album Notes
Ethnomusicologist and multi-instrumentalist, Brian Parks (a.k.a. bKp) achieves a world-music style all his own playing guitar, bass, percussion, and mbira dzavadzimu, sacred instrument from Zimbabwe. bKp's first album "Just Like the Sun" is a mixture of styles and influences, blending traditional Shona roots music with afro-pop, folk, rock, reggae and dub.

I bought this album somewhat randomly after seeing it on the new artist page. MAN! It's way more than I expected. Something about the way these songs carry you to other parts o' the world.
BKP--come on up to Utah!

So Peaceful...
I love this CD. Very unique and soothing. Not only does the talent make this Cd worth the buy, but the melodies and lyrics are so smooth. Just buy it and go for a long drive.

This music is amazing for a debut album. I teach sixth grade and play this cd for my students during study hall. They all sing along and love it. Also, my three-year-old asks for "Brian's music" and she instantly calms down, even when tantruming, when this music starts playing. The words are peaceful so I like that I can play it with her and she can sing along. Thank you for this contribution and please keep making more music for the world to enjoy!
