Clearly other records on the label and by these Kikuyu bands exist - why would one of them record a Part 2 otherwise? That aside, I can’t tell you anything about any of the bands – except to state that the Nguku Happy Brothers also recorded for Kihingo Sounds – or the label itself.


Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying the label scan and record information for PHOTO 1, 3 and 13 in March 2011 and August 2013. The other three records appeared for sale on Fredrik Lavik’s Afro7 website in autumn 2015.
