Veteran musician Daudi Kabaka produced OYR 12 for this AIT-distributed label. The single, which surfaced on Ebay in March 2009, features the orutu, a traditional one-stringed fiddle.

There’s another single featuring the instrument by the Malombo Orutu Choir on the Tat Yien label.

OYR 7 and OYR 8 turned up on Ebay in March 2011, though without a producer’s credit to Daudi Kabaka, and the rest of the singles come from the AIT master catalogue, revealing a roster of Luo bands that is very similar to the Kido label.

The unbroken run of catalogue numbers suggests this listing may now be complete.
