WAANYIKA

AIT Records label operating from early to mid 1980s and featuring tracks primarily by Les Wanyika offshoots produced by Felix G Njaakumu. The appearance of a copy of Nyika 09 on Ebay bearing the date 1984 in March 2010 confirms the original date attribution.


The listing for this label is based on the Wanyika Groups discography compiled by John Beadle with Doug Paterson and Peter Toll for Toshiya Endo’s website, which you can find here.


Peter Toll points out that Nyika 013 is a follow-up to the original Sigalame (MUYA 6) on Isuni-Yilu. After its success Issa Juma recorded a new version of the song which he called Sigalame No. 2.


Nyika 8 is listed in AIT’s master catalogue as having a different title to the version of Nyika 8 illustrating this listing that CC Smith supplied. I’ve listed both until the position can be clarified.


Nyika 4 is a four song disc, possibly even a 12-inch release.


October 2011: a copy of Nyika 2, a title long missing from this entry, was located in the collection of the Ethnographical Museum in Berlin.
