I’m so happy to have this crazed hobby. Every time I learn
something new, like here. When my dear fellow blogger
Nauma at Freedomblues posted The Victoria Kings last week
with ‘the Mighty Kings of Benga’, I got excited, I didn’t know them
yet and I just love that Benga sound. Thank you ever so much Nauma.
Then, when I was browsing the fair last friday I found some fantastic
Kenyan stuff. Always nice to be able to return the favor. Here’s the
first volume of ‘Kenya Partout !’, I found it with a couple of others.
It contains some of that 70’s benga by the hottest bands.
Get under this freedom global blues groove,..wow…
