AIT label that put out records produced by Oluoch Kanindo featuring some of the top Luo benga bands of the 1970s, including George Ramogi’s Central K Jazz, Victoria Jazz of Collela Mazee and Ochieng Nelly Mengo and DO Misiani’s DO7 Shirati Jazz.


The reasoning behind the PO MPYA prefix is unknown, though it surely can’t be a coincidence that “mpya” is Swahili for “new”.


In March 2011 this listing was updated with material from the AIT master catalogue, a valuable document but not without its flaws. Obvious anomalies and duplications are highlighted in bold, and will one day hopefully be resolved.
