Shirati Luo Voice Jazz -
Ikwokirikwo Hits of East Africa,
Sungura 1972



















For today's post we've got us an old Kenyan lp. It's from
1972 and soundquality is not the best, the music however is.
Shirati Luo Voice Jazz was their name in those days and
their leader was none less than D.O. Misiani who we know
from his later work with "Shirati Jazz". The cover you see I
found online, my copy came in a wrong cover unfortunately.
Nevertheless, even with cracks, pops and hiss,
I guess it's worth a couple of spins..
Get it and spread it..

tracks;

 1   J.o. ramebeya
 2   Polina no.2
 3   Hezron macoto
 4   Margret odero olumbe
 5   Okwiri janyakach
 6   Jobwa no.2
 7   Margret wambwa
 8   Walton bunde
 9   D. kathorin ager
10  Shirati dhinyime
11  P.n. mcotieno
12  Sipi akeyo
