New on "Likembe": Classic East African & Congolese 45s
- I've recently posted on my audioblog "Likembe" a number of classic 45s
from East Africa and the Congo. These singles were all pressed in
Kenya in the early 1980s.
"East African Memories" features the amusing and rare novelty tune by
D.O.7 Shirati Jazz, "I'm Tired." I've also posted hard-to-find tracks
by the Maroon Commandos, Issa Juma & Waanyika, Les Volcano and Sukuma
In "Those Were the Days" I've posted rare recordings by Mayaula
Mayoni, Franco, Souzy Kasseya, Manana Antoine and Orchestre Lipua-Lipua:
Recent "Likembe" posts have explored Nigerian highlife, The African
Brothers Band of Ghana, Somali funk and Ethiopian music from the
eighties, among other topics:
