OULA

Quartet of singles that turned up on Ebay in April 2009 on yet another label operated by Oluoch Kanindo, the producer behind POK, Bolingo and many other labels.


What’s interesting about the label, though, is that it predates Victoria Kings’ own Oula Recording Company, based in Suna, which put out records, according to the sleevenotes of the Victoria Kings’ Mighty Kings of Benga CD on Globestyle, in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Here, though, Oula is a Kanindo label putting out singles by other Luo bands and at a slightly earlier date too.
