Playing tracks by
Gil Scott-Heron, Owiny sigoma band, Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX, Adele, Black Eyed Peas and more.
I compiled this mainly to showcase two outstanding musical groups from Kenya with (relatively) new releases. Owiny Sigoma Band's self-titled debut album is now out with a lot of catchy tunes fusing Luo/Benga/Nyatiti beats with an electronic/dub touch by the UK half of this band. They sound amazing, be sure to cop that album here: http://brownswoodrecordings.greedbag.com/
Just A Band's recent compilation, Kudish! (available here: http://music.just-a-band.com/album/kudish-the-sound-of-soup ), also has some great tracks sampled below. There are some sprinkles of the late great Gil Scott-Heron (R.I.P) and other random stuff to make the set a bit unpredictable, and it closes with some good old Fela Kuti. Enjoy!
