The Good Ones is the name of a project based around three Rwandan genocide survivors: Adrien Kazigira, Stany Hitimana, and Jeanvier Havugimana. On a trip to Kigali, Rwanda in search of local music, producer Ian Brennan (recently of Kyp Malone’s Rain Machine) happened upon the gents in The Good Ones and quickly proceeded to record the songs on their Dead Oceans debut Kigali Y’ Izahabu. Sung in the predominant Kinyarwanda and tucked in by a couple acoustic guitars and the soft pat of someone’s shoe, The Good Ones’ three-man harmonies are about as slack and welcoming as any porch-recorded music you’ve heard.

Current Version (version 9, 17 Sep 2011, 23:15)

The Good Ones is a trio of Rwandan genocide survivors who play joyous, acoustic love songs written in the ancient local, Kinyarwanda street dialect of their nation's capital, Kigali. Adrien Kazigira, Stany Hitimana and Jeanvier Havugimana recorded the songs collected on Kigali Y' Izahabu over the course of one summer evening on the back porch of a friend's home. The primary obstacle to recording the group was that the musicians showed up with only one guitar for two players, and that guitar was missing two strings. Hitimana "played bass" on the 4-string and a beat-up acoustic was located for the second guitarist, the sullen, primary songwriter Kazigira who interweaves intricate harmonies with co-singer Havugimana.. In a style often referred to as "worker songs from the streets," these simple, direct and plaintive love songs speak more to the healing power of peace than a thousand academic treatises or preachy goodwill ambassadors ever could. http://www.thefader.com/2010/08/26/premiere-rwandas-the-good-ones-new-dead-oceans-single-sara/
