Orch DO7 Shirati Jazz - Sigano Owino

SO 1            Central K Jazz Band                            Madongo Biro Ponte/Mzee Jomo Kenyatta   1978

AIT-distributed label for the prolific DO Misiani, one of the masters of Luo benga.

And a busy man, too, as he’s also recorded for: Awendo Rakido, Bwana Otieko Weche, Chiew Rakuthe, King Kong, Koth Kiyombi, Lolwe, Mbutta, Nyang Omari Crocodile, Nyati Mkali Omoro Ja Mirima and Sungura.

No doubt, other labels will come to light.

The single, SO1, seems to be a special, written by DO Misiani and produced by Okoth Kodondi, with the words Sigano Owino overprinted across the label. A similar collaboration can be found on the Omoro Ja Mirima label.
