Kericho-based label run by AP Chandarana that was an important outlet in Kenya for music by Tanzanian bands.


If the catalogue numbers run true, then it released almost 80 records in 1973 alone, suggesting there are many holes to fill in this listing.


Saba 7-235 turned up on Ebay in April 2011 and is the only Saba Saba release to carry a pink label that I have encountered so far.
