One of the labels of the prolific Kikuyu bandleader, Joseph Kamaru, the label name standing for Kamaru Music Store. See also City Sound, Kamaru and Kenya United Sounds.

Worth mentioning that sometimes the band was labelled as the City Sound Band and sometimes it was the City Sounds Band, depending on the whims of the typesetter. You will find both in this website.

I’ve yet to find a history of Kamaru’s activities detailed enough to outline the difference between his various bands, but you can find an overview of his career in an April 2009 Daily Nation interview with him here.
