Evidently a Diploma-distributed label for Shem Tube, a Luhya muscian who is best known in Europe as a member of Abana Ba Nasery because of the LP Abana Ba Nasery: Classic Acoustic Recordings from Western Kenya (Globestyle, 1989). Tube also features in the songwriting credits on releases on the Luanda Magere label.

STT 1 turned up on Ebay in March 2009, while STT 005 is from Doug Paterson’s collection. Both are by Luhya bands from western Kenya.
