To read the full story of Jimmy Moni Mambo’s Orch Shika Shika, Coco Zigo Mike’s Viva Stars and Moreno Batamba’s Orch Moja One, go to www.muzikifan.com/shika.html which has a detailed account of Congolese bands in Kenya.

The label-hopping Orch Shika Shika primarily recorded for Hit Parade but also cut records for Bolingo, CBS, City Boom, Editions Jaca, Editions Musique Bénie, Makossa, Safari and Musiciana.

Hudson Radio Service had another label, Edition de Hudson, that also recorded Congolese bands.

Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying the label scan and record information on HUDP 102 in March 2011 and to Jim Stiles for providing details of HUDP-01 in August 2013. HUDP 002 turned up on the CD&LP.com selling site in November 2013.
