NYANDARWA SOUNDS

A label offering a mixed bag of Kikuyu-language releases. Information about NDS 7-1 was supplied by Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris in April 2011 and details of the rest have come from AIT’s master catalogue. It contains a couple of mistakes: the band’s name on NDS 4 is incomplete and two singles, highlighted in bold, are listed as being NDS 7. It is highly likely that one of these singles is NDS 2 and only eight records were issued on the label


Nyandarua is a district in Central Province, north of Nairobi. Why the label should bear its name, though, isn’t obvious as Elburgon, Dagoretti and Ofafa are not in the district.
