Makossa (US) 1980

media : EX-/EX-(some slightly wear that does not affect to sounds.)

A 12" single released in 1980 by Orch. D.O.7 Shirati Jazz, one of the most successful bands in Kenya, Africa, formed around Daniel Owino Misiani. It was released on the New York-based African music label Makossa. It's a Nairobi beat/soukous, inherited from Congo, a West African folk music, but the cheap machine beat on the rhythm box gives it a unique atmosphere. The bass line is also unusually thick and danceable in these two songs.

A: Mika Owiti Gor
B: Jacob Odihiambo
