As Shirati Luo Voice Jazz, bands led by DO Misiani also cut sides for

Bell Bottom, Lolwe, Mbutta, Nyang Omari Crocodile, POK, Sungura. Factor in the many, many singles as Orch DO7 Shirati Jazz and you have a very substantial body of work. See the Bands Index for an up-to-date list of the many labels for whom DO Misiani cut records.

Who put out BUM 7-1, which turned up on Ebay in March 2009,  is anyone’s guess.

BUM 7-3 was offered for sale on Ebay in October 2009 and BUM 7-2 turned up on the same site in March 2013.

Many thanks to Chris Albertyn for supplying details of BIBI 6 in October 2016. The catalogue number prefix has changed for this recording by a Tanzanian band. BIBI 11 showed up on CD&LP.com in June 2017. The song is written by Issa Juma, suggesting this may be by one of the Wanyika bands recording under a pseudonym.
