Records in your cart: Maquis Du Zaire Orch. Moja Moja Nairobi International Orch. Musicologist Werner Graebner has characterized benga as having "a fast beat, a rhythm guitar playing with strong roots in nyatiti harp playing, and a punchy, up-front bass line.
Sega Sega is another Luo band coming out of this tradition but they have also managed to gain quite a following outside the Luo ethnic group with a series of quite humorous songs recorded in Swahili. Among the Kikuyu artists, Joseph Kamaru ranks among the most prolific and most successful in the industry having recorded at least singles since with record sales in the order ofHis songs provide a commentary on current day social and political issues and he is renowned for his skillful use of Kikuyu language and proverbs.
Some of his melodies are adapted from tunes that were circulating in the s and 40s. On occasion, Kamaru has ventured into Swahili and English language songs with mixed success. His recent cassette, Chiira wa Mama Chiru contains a wide range of styles from the near-benga "cavacha" to some things that likely have some traditional Kikuyu folk elements underlying them. Of the Kamba musicians, Kakai Kilonzo and his Les Kilimambogo Brothers Band stand out, like Kamaru, as consistent hit makers as well as astute businessmen in the recording industry.
Les Kilimambogo are a great band. The reaction of the crowd especially the men to these three ladies was like nothing I had ever seen before in Kenya. However, in this case, from the moment the "Sisters" took the stage, a large enthusiastic crowd gathered in front pushing and shoving each other to get a view.
And it remained that way for the whole performance. The reaction of the Kalambya Sisters to this was all the more fascinating. They were simply "too cool" to notice that there was even anyone there. Picture the three attractive young women swaying back and forth, looking over and beyond the crowd no hint of acknowledgmentsinging or rather. Definitely a crowd stopper As mentioned above, Simba Wanyika with their Tanzanian origins have been a major force in Swahili language music.
John Ndichu & his Group
Out of Les Wanyika, Tanzanian lssa Juma has had several incarnations under various Wanyika names, the latest being Super Wanyika Stars appearing on what may be half a dozen different record labels. After spending six months in prison for working in Kenya illegally, Issa is now out and recording again with a recent album filled Bwana Musa and a number of new singles. There are a few other bands with Swahili language repertoires for example, Maroon Commandos and the Mombasa-based tourist bands but, on the recording scene, most of the remaining Swahili music is Tanzanian in origin.
Today, although these labels have very little to do with the Tanzanian groups, there is a fairly good selection of such music available in Nairobi from independent labels such as Ahadi. Recording under the band name Moja One, Zairean singer Moreno Batamba has, in the past, put out quite a number of worthy Swahili singles. His music represents an interesting Zairean Swahili cross.
Moreno has a rich and powerful voice that makes him one of my favourites.
In the past year, he has joined forces with another Nairobi group, Kenya Blue Stars. Their single Sina Kisomo was first rate, innovative, Swahili language music. Unfortunately, the female voices are unexceptional and uncontrolled and the experimentation with synthesizer simplistic. While there are some good things in this LP a high quality recording, some good songs, tight arrangementsthe overall product is disappointing.
