JASHO

An Audio Productions label by the same firm that was behind the APL, Boxer, Editions Suplov, Hit Parade, Mlima, Sound of Music, Audio Productions and other labels.


Orch Super Sonics don’t feature elsewhere on this discography, though the credit to Vicky Omondi suggests this was a Luo band singing here in Swahili, as Omondi is a fairly common Luo name. It is possible the name is a pseudonym for Omondi Jassor, a member of Orch Simba National who also recorded under his own name for Matata.


JAS 004 aside, all the rest of the records listed here have come from an Audio Productions catalogue unearthed by Flemming Harrev in the London archives of Stern’s in October 2013. JAS 005 is in Kirundi, the official language of Birundi, while the other two singles are in Dholuo.
