Evidently started by Orange Records of Nairobi as a sister label to Sunset, the two sharing almost identical label designs and both being dedicated to releases in Dholuo.

Phonogram appears to have taken on distribution of Hi-Hit at some stage and many of its releases carry a subsidiary AS catalogue number suggesting a link with Associated Sound (ASL) in Nairobi. If that’s the case, then it would date these singles to 1972-73.

Many of these singles are in the British Library’s National Sound Archive.

Both Ecko Jazz Band and Kajulu Boys also recorded for Atudo.
