AIT-distributed label for the prolific DO Misiani, one of the masters of Luo benga.


And a busy man, too, as he’s also recorded for: Awendo Rakido, Bwana Otieko Weche, Chiew Rakuthe, King Kong, Koth Kiyombi, Lolwe, Mbutta, Nyang Omari Crocodile, Nyati Mkali Omoro Ja Mirima and Sungura among others. Check the Bands Index for an up-to-date list.


The single, SO1, seems to be _ like Special 10 - a special, written by DO Misiani and produced by Okoth Kodondi, with the words Sigano Owino overprinted across the label. A similar collaboration can be found on the Omoro Ja Mirima label. Otherwise, DO14 through to DO18 were produced by Daudi Kabaka, another veteran of the Kenyan music scene, and it is possible he produced other singles on the label too.


Update, March 2012: The listing for SPECIAL 7 is a tentative attribution. The record definitely exists but it was presented to me as DO7, and it seems unlikely the label would have two records with the same catalogue number.
