VariousBoys From Nairobi – Benga & Rumba From 80s Kenya ... LP
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
A set of Kenyan tracks we've never heard before – all served up with the kind of fast-moving rhythms you'd guess from the title – occasional influences from Cuban music, blended with a spirit that's heavy on the vibrant style of East African music at the time! The "boys" in the title is a reference to the way that the word is used in the name of all the groups here – which will give you a hint at the male bent in the track selection – served up here on cuts that were only ever issued as 7" singles on small labels back in the 80s! Titles include "Mchezo Wa Panya" and "Ungwana Ni Tabla" by Kali Kali Boys, "Mpenza Maggie" and "Mbarak Mwinshehe" by Kangundo D Boys, "Nidikwenda Kwanangwo" and "Nowe Wecuka" by Nyeri Honey Boys, "Njeri" and "Mwenda Wama" by Kirurumo Boys, and "Kyalo Kya Sikimu" and "Ivinda Ya Tene" by Kayanganga Boys Band.

✨✧ Kakai Kilonzo & Les Kilimambogo BrothersBuffalo Mountain (with bonus CD) ... LP
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Classic benga work from the Kenyan scene – material pulled from the all-too-brief career of Kakai Kionzo, who managed to unite some of the scenes and styles in his nation, before leaving this planet at a very young age! The work here has a very rhythmic vibe throughout – basslines dipping up and down quickly, next to the percussion – while guitars sometimes riff along, sometimes create more melodic lines that criss-cross nicely – all while Kakai trades vocal lines and guitar parts with other members of the group. The tracks are all rare 45s from the late 70s and early 80s – and titles include "Mwiithu Beth", "Baba Mkwe (parts 1 & 2)", "Kilimambogo Mathauni", "Punguza Ulevi", "Bibi Ni Wa Mmoja", and "Bibi Yangu Nakupenda".
