A collection of long out of print recordings by artists from East Africa: Tanzania (Biashara Jazz Band), Democratic Republic of Congo (Baba Ilunga Wa Ilunga, Orch. Bana Ekanga and Orch. Moja One Band) and western Kenya (Victoria Chomeka and International De Nelly), all recorded in Nairobi between 1976 and 1996. Previously released on labels such as Doromy, Jojo, Ochimbo Ja-Yon Go and Editions Dokan, with the exception of "Nakuomba", which is seeing the light of day here for the first time. These songs reflect some of the main musical styles recorded in this era, including Kenya's native up tempo Benga, Tanzanian-influenced Swahili rumba and Congolese rumba. The album was released in August 2017 and received airplay from Gideon Coe on BBC 6music, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction (two tracks played), DJ Ritu on SOAS Radio, Roger Hill on PMS BBC Radio Merseyside, Steve Barker On The Wire on BBC Radio Lancashire, and DJs Zoe Baxter and Debbie Golt on Resonance FM. Tracks have been played by London-based DJ collective Village Cuts at their African music nights. The album was positively reviewed by African music expert Alastair Johnston on his muzikifan.com website.
