Orch Les Africanoes sing in Lingala so are presumably a Congolese band, though I can’t add anything further to that except that their single showed up on Ebay in March 2009. It is possible that they are the same band as Orch Les Afrikanos who cut a side in English for CBS.


MNA 7-004 is by a Luo benga band who also recorded for Jojo Productions, Lake Victoria, Pino, Playa Sound.


The record turned up for sale at Sounds of the Universe in London in January 2009. MNA 7-003 appeared for sale on Fredrik Lavik’s Afro.7 website in July 2013. Its presence made me realise that this label and M.N.R. are both Nyabange Productions labels.
