“Album Review:Canaan Caravan This guitar album is quite the thing that was missing from the scene. Obed Zeme’s instrumental outing is truly a majestic journey across the wonderland of guitar rock much like the journey of the caravan in search of the Promised Land, Canaan as mentioned in the Bible. This record is Obed’s rendition of a decade long musical journey, almost a concept album meticulously titled “Canaan Caravan”. A very Christian music album with lots of fun positive vibes, soaring and blazing melodious guitar works minus all the depressing and over used-worn out elements of rock music.
