At least the first three of the singles listed were distributed by Melodica and it’s possible the rest were too.

It seems to have been primarily an outlet for productions by Luo bandleader George Ramogi (1945-97), whose Continental Kilo Jazz Band - later shortened to CK Jazz - mixed benga and rumba styles to great effect.

Thanks to Ray Templeton for the label scan of HPP 7-40.
