PST series: note, the British Library lists some of these records as being on a separate label PRT and by the St Celia Choir, while another source has them on Melodica by the St Cecilia Choir. I’ve listed them under both for now.



PST 7-1007   St Cecilia Choir                     Jongeeni Wakristo/Kimya Bara


PST 7-1009   St Cecilia Choir                       Pokea Moyo/Induki Jubilo


PST 7-1010   St Cecilia Choir                     Yesu Mwanzo Alikua/Tumshukuru Mungu


PST 7-1019 Methodist Kanondone Choir     A: Jesu Aciarirwe Imariamu                       Meru

PT 37-38                                                 B: Kiambiriria Murungu Ombire Nthi

















One of the most prolific record labels in Kenya, both under its own imprint and as a distributor of subsidiaries.


Every record on Melodica that I’ve set eyes on has had a 7- prefix before the main number. Not all cataloguers have bothered with this, so I have left it off in numerous instances too.


All the singles are in Dholuo except where noted. Again, this was done to save me keystrokes.


Dates are included when they appear on the label. It seems reasonable to suggest that Melodica started producing records in either 1971 or 1972 to judge by the number of records the firm put out in 1973.
