AIT label featuring Dholuo productions by both Okoth Kodondi and CA Kochomo. Most of the listings for the ARA prefixes were added in February 2011 and are taken from AIT’s own database of recordings.

The vast majority of the records are by bands such as Migori Super Stars, Kawere Boys and Gem Lucky Jazz who recorded prolifically for other labels. But Orch Malare Boys and Nyancha Mirieri Boys (please note: AIT’s database has two different spellings for this band, so I have retained this anomaly for now) only appear to have recorded for this label.

AIT’s database do not list any titles with an ARB prefix, which suggests these records may have been made or distributed in other parts of Africa.
