A treasure-trove of rare and unusual recordings from East Africa, accompanied by detailed liner notes, original artwork and photographs.
Kenya Special is a collection of 32 recordings (most of which were only ever released on small-run 45rpm 7" singles) that stand out as being different or unique as well as some classic genre standards. From Kikuyu language 'liquid soul', Luo benga and Swahili afrobeat to genre-bending Congolese and Tanzanian tracks recorded in Nairobi. Many of the tracks featured here are peppered with innovation and experimentation highlighting how diverse the music scene in Kenya was at the time.
