Early to mid 1970s AIT label, primarily for Luo benga bands,

though SGA 7-036 is a Lingala rumba track. It seems to be yet another outlet for productions by PO Kanindo, the man behind the POK label and others.


Most of the listings come from AIT’s master catalogue and were added in March 2011. While a valuable source of information, the catalogue is not definitive. In some cases, two titles appear with the same catalogue number (instances here are highlighted in bold) and there is the suspicion that some of the b-sides listed are in fact the name of the a-side’s producer or songwriter. Until all listings can be verified independently, some degree of caution is advised.


SGA 7-042 and SGA 7-247 are Mozambique pressings, but presumably carry the same catalogue numbers as Kenyan ones.


Not sure why the catalogue prefix changed for the DO7 Shirati Jazz single, SAB 004, which turned up on Ebay in October 2008.


Sungura records also turned up in a batch on offer from a South African seller on Ebay in January 2012, which suggests that the label was used by AIT/Teal for export sales, indicated by the SGB prefix and possibly by the SAB prefix too.


Details of the Shjrati Luo Voice SGA Mjanja 2 single were supplied by Flemming Harrev in February 2010. “Sungura” means “rabbit”, while “mjanja” can be translated as smart, clever or crafty, attributes attached to rabbits in many African folk tales.
