Although there are two very different catalogue prefixes, I am assuming both are connected to the same Audio Productions of Nairobi label.

WENDO 04, from Flemming Harrev’s collection is by the New Gatanga Boys who are either an offshoot or a a continuation of the Gatanga Boys, a Kikuyu band who also recorded for Mercury.

WEE 01 from Doug Paterson’s collection is by the sister group to the popular Kamba band, the Kalambya Brothers. The sisters also recorded for Ngatata and Utanu.

WENDO 01 turned up on the CD&LP sales site in February 2013. All other titles are taken from an Audio Productions catalogue found in October 2013 by Flemming Harrev while researching the archive of Stern’s in London.
