MATUNDA

A sister label to Mercury from the mid to late 1970s, featuring a very similar label design.


MAU 7-007 is a Kikuyu choir recording taped by John Beadle, while MAU 7-005 is by a Kikuyu band who don’t feature anywhere else in this discography.


Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for the red label scan.


Update: in January 2012, MAU 7-33 turned up on Ebay. It is by Machakos Central High School Choir, who also recorded for Kirinyaga. A year later, in January 2013, MAU 7-52 surfaced, again on Ebay. It’s by Kakai Kilonzo’s widely recorded Kilimambogo Brothers and indicates that there are clearly many other recordings on this label that have yet to be listed here.
