KEA 01        The African Weavers                      Kulutu Pts 1 & 2

                   or Samba Mapangala

This record was located in the archives of the Ethnological Museum, Berlin, in October 2011. Its catalogue provides no date for the recording nor any indication of whether the label is affiliated to any other label or producer. It appears to date from the late 1970s or the 1980s.

The catalogue is unclear who the recording artist is, too. It appears to list the African Weavers as the main artists but Samba Mapangala’s name also appears in the catalogue, making it hard to tell whether this is an obscure single by one of East Africa’s best-known musicians or a record by an otherwise unknown  group that he has assisted in some capacity.
