A Victoria Music Stores label for productions by Okoth Kodondi, a man whose name must grace more records in this discography than anybody else. Based on the two singles that have emerged so far, the label appears to be dedicated to releases by the Kawere Boys Band, a Luo benga band who enjoyed their heyday in the mid to late 1970s. Read more about the band’s history and listen to some of their music on Matthew Lavoie’s VOA African Music Treasures blog.

Thanks to Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris for supplying the label scan and record information in March 2011.
