Nairobi-based Kundi Electronics appears to have released records throughout the 1970s. The general rule that each language was a assigned a different catalogue prefix broadly holds true with the exception of ROC 7010. But why is SOL 5011 by Kaudha Twins Band ’72 and SOL 5038 by Kaudha Twins Band ’73?

Kundi had at least one sister label, Sibuor.
