A Doromy label - the name means “wasp” - for Luo bands from the mid-1970s featuring George Ramogi’s CK Dumbe-Dumbe, Gem Lucky Band and Oremo Jazz Band.

Update, September 2011: PI 7-417 turned up on the 45Cat website that also provided the label scan, while PI 7-408 appeared on CD&LP.com in November 2013 and PI 15 on eBay in April 2016. Both of the latter records feature the nyatiti, a lyre, typically with eight-strings, that is a key instrument in traditional Luo music.
