MU-AFRICA

The label on MU 003, a Kikuyu single that turned up on Ebay in March 2009, doesn’t give much away about its provenance. All I can add, then, is that Lawrence Nduru’s band also cut sides for  Kalamindi, Kirinyaga, Nguirubi and Sawa Sawa Sound among others. See the Bands Index for an up-to-date list.


The other records have come in over time, largely from Fredrik Lavik’s Afro 7 website. To judge by the catalogue numbers, there are many more records waiting to be rediscovered.
